Soooo 3 hours later.. thats how long it took to generate a 16KB SSH key pair.. lol..

But it was worth the wait.. Testing with a 16KB public key does in fact fail with FlashFXP. It would appear that the encryption engine I use has a default max length of 8KB (which I was completely unaware of.).

It would appear that using a 16KB public key adds a fair amount of overhead so I think that perhaps the reason its limited to 8KB is just to be reasonable.

I can simply override the default value and increase the limit to 16KB so that the key will work.

I will post a test build with this change tonight or tomorrow morning, I need to finish investigating a couple other issues first.
