Python Paramiko (the SSH framework I use in Python X2Go does not  
understand ECDSA keys, yet. Only RSA and DSA. Paramiko upstream has  
been unmaintained for a while, but a guy from Frisco now has become  
the official upstream owner of the Paramiko code and development  
currently goes straight towards 1.8.0. So, please be patient and wait  
a little more for ECDSA.
