I can't create RSA key for SSH, only DSA?

In the SSH keys manager I am given the option to create either a DSA or RSA key but the RSA key creation never goes through. I mean, nothing happens and there is no key added to the SSH key manager. No error message either.

Any ideas what could be the reason? I'd really prefer RSA...

Thanks, that worked!

The SSH key manager in WHM is somewhat buggy in my opinion. For example the authenticating/de-authenticating keys through it seems to be quite unreliable - the current status of the key is very often not displayed properly. And I am not sure if it's a good idea to create the Putty formatted .ppk private key with "read by others" permission.
