You have to add -o IdentitiesOnly=yes to skip the agent's keys.

SSH: passwords or keys?

OOo. Thank you, that's very useful! (though I'm not sure it'll help if you
have lots of identities in your .ssh directory which the agent doesn't
know about. I suppose the solution there is to add them to the agent.)

Well, I suppose the option may be for paranoid people who don't want to use their agent-stored identities for authentication tries against unknown ssh servers. Me, I use it mainly for debugging connection and/or authentication problems to well-known servers when the ssh daemon there is running in debug mode and I want to have precise control what my client sends to it.
