Use 'duplicity --ssh-askpass /var/opt ...' and it should work.

Yes, this is a bug.  SSH is not normally used with passwords, so
duplicity defaults to not asking.  The side-effect of not asking is that
it does not look to see if one has been supplied on the command line.
It should check that in all cases.

If you would submit a bug report on this, I would appreciate it.
