This message is displayed by SSH, and there is no way MD can
intercept/replace it. If you are starting MD from a desktop shortcut,
the MD process won't have a terminal bound to it and SSH will display a
window with the message in this case. The application to run when a
prompt has to be shown can be specified in the SSH_ASKPASS env var (set
to x11-ssh-askpass by default). But if you start MD from a terminal, SSH
will ignore SSH_ASKPASS and will always show prompts in that terminal.
AFAIK, there is no way to change this behavior.

Why should it be editable? What should allow you to edit? or do you mean


PS: Sigh, I really hate when people ask 'why is feature xxxx not
implemented' on an open source project.
