That is what happens when you try to connect to some services on some
systems I maintain, and it's what happens when our students try to use
the Internet at times school rules forbid it.
I just drop the packets, and the offending systems eventually time out.

I don't understand this. I judge that the RH/Fedora description is
incomplete: here's how Debian describes it:
Description: under X, asks user for a passphrase for ssh-add
This is Jim Knoble's free implementation of the ssh-askpass program.
Jim calls this x11-ssh-askpass, but I've decided to call it ssh-askpass
to make it easier to find, because this is almost certainly the version
The other two versions from the OpenSSH source are also available if
interested (as ssh-askpass-ptk and ssh-askpass-gnome).
The non-free implementation is no longer being packaged. Its source is
still available, as part of ssh-nonfree's source.

I don't believe I've ever used it, though I use the ssh command dozens
of times a day. Certainly, one can't have openssh-askpass without X, but
I regularly use ssh outside of X, and where appropriate it prompts for
my password the same way whether I'm in an X environment or not.

I think that in order to get a good answer you need to give a good
description. You are our eyes, don't leave us blind!
