Reverse SCP task doesn't accept private ssh key

Hi,
I'm using the Reverse SCP task on Bamboo 5.9.4 build 5919, but it doesn't accept my private ssh key when I choose "Key without passphrase" as Authentication Type. The key file is formatted like this:
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
MIIEpQIBAAKCAQEAhoMo54vy...
...
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
I would get the error message "There is something wrong with your private key: null"
In Firebug I can see that the key is being transmitted to Bamboo:

 

Content-Disposition: form-data; name="private_key"; filename="id_rsa"
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
MIIEpQIBAAKCAQEAhoMo54vyeHLwv++...
...
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
What might be the problem?
Thanks,
  Ingmar
