Adding a public SSH key to OVH control panel

A quick post this one.

You bring up your SSH key, you go to paste it into the OVH interface, and then it refuses to show you the button to submit, what gives?

Not sure? Well, does the key description have spaces in it?

Eg.
ssh-rsa AA......= Foobar key 1

OpenSSH happily accepts this without issue. OVH's web interface, on the other hand, believes that the format is invalid and won't let you submit.

Take the spaces out of the key comment, and all is well with the world :)
