Since the introdcution of openssh 6.5p1 you can no longer use 'Host
MyHost' in your .ssh/config .

There is a fix[1] suggested for it which needs some adaptation to apply
on 6.5p1[2] on the openssh mailinglist after reporting it[3].

It would be nice to have this patch applied since it might break other
users ssh workflow too.


Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

openssh 6.5p1

sample config:

Host MyHost
Port 1234
User root
IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa

Steps to reproduce:
