That's handled by gnome-keyring and, as of this version of GNOME,
ssh-agent. As far as I can tell, those are both required components, so
they're probably not missing on your workstation. The problem *might* be
that GNOME keyring will only automatically unlock private keys if there
is a valid public key with the same name, and a .pub suffix. So, you
might not have the public keys. Or, you might have a .pub file that's
*really* old and no longer valid.
There is an open bug concerning the fact that if there is an invalid
.pub file in .ssh, GNOME keyring won't automatically unlock *any* keys,
so remove any old key files.
