Cannot import key into gnome-keyring (seahorse)

I upgraded to F36 and all went well except that Eclipse now shows errors when I try to git push to my repository. I get the ssh error “too many authentication failures”. I can manually push but not through ‘egit’. In trying to debug this I went to ‘seahorse’ to check what ssh keys I had on my key ring. It did not show my key there and so I tried to add it. I could not. The “Import” button remains grayed out.
Does any one know what could be preventing import of an ssh private key? (I tried another key with the same result)
