ssh agent prompting for password every time with non-standard binary paths

Hi 1password team, I am attempting to use the 1password ssh agent feature and it is prompting me for "one-shot authentication" every time I git fetch. I believe this is because it is attempting to validate that I am using a binary in a trusted location and I'm not accidentally leaking credentials to something else called "git" that installed itself on my path, however I use home-manager which is a project that uses nix, so the actual path to the binary isn't something like /usr/bin/git, it's something like /nix/store/2sqq49dbv3gksfnv9vhvfalpprna6s50-git-2.36.1/bin/git. I was hoping there was a way to toggle that functionality off because while I really liked the additional security of not having to store my private keys unencrypted on my filesystem it was too much to be prompted for the password every time I ran git fetch

thanks!

    Thanks for reporting this! That is indeed not the desired behavior. To help us fix this, it would be great if you could send us your SSH diagnostics, as described here.

    @chrispickard Thanks a lot for submitting those! The fix for this will be present in next week's beta. If you'd like to get your hands on it sooner, it's already available now on the nightly/edge channel.
