Sorry if it was not clear, but the whole point of my comment was of course that logging in to type a passphrase is not an option, for several given reasons. I wanted to point out that -- contrary to what you suggested -- running ssh-agents is not making things more secure by default. Especially if you worry -- as you seem to be doing -- about the kind of incidents that involve unauthorized access to systems and disks.
