ssh-agent not persisting added identities

title stolen from superuser forum, this is a deal breaker as an admin, I need the ssh-agent to "just work" every time I open WSL. right now I have to run commands to add identities every time I reboot or restart bash. I just find myself going back to putty to log into hosts so I don't have to go through the process of | eval $(ssh-agent) -> ssh-add <username>.pem blah blah

    yes I'm aware of the workarounds, I've done the workarounds, still it would be nice if this worked OOB
