Bug: SSH agent admitted failure on big endian machines on Ubuntu

I was trying to bypass the authentication on ssh and I receive the following message:

user@host:~$ ssh remote-host
Agent admitted failure to sign using the key.

I found that it is a bug of Ubuntu on big endian machines. The turnaround that works for me was add the following lines to my .bashrc:

echo -e "\nexport SSH_AUTH_SOCK=0" >> .bashrc

See ya
