No, but you could try running the agent from the command line and seeing 
what happens...
/sbin/fence_rsa -a hostname_of_rsa_card -l login -p password -v (for 
verbose). You can see the fence_rsa man page for more info.

fence_rsa has been a goo performer...I seem to recall a bug about not 
working with custom command prompts, but that has been fixed about 
everywhere I believe.
