SSH confirmation with gpg-agent on Windows has the Allow button as the default action
Open, NormalPublic


When the "sshcontrol" file is configured with the "confirm" flag for a key, a
prompt appears every time it is used by ssh.

On Linux (Ubuntu using Unity), the default action is "Deny" but on Windows the
default action is "Allow". It should be "Deny" to avoid accidentally allowing an
expected request.

It should indeed be identical on all platforms.
iirc, the orginal request for that feature was to make allow the default.
