Question about passphrases with protocol 1.

I just recently installed keychain (which I think is pretty cool).
I have two keys. The first is a DSA ssh2 key and the second is ssh1 RSA.
When I first log in (after a fresh reboot), it runs ssh-agent and then
runs ssh-add. The problem is that both keys have the same passphrase but
I only get asked for one passphrase. This, even though it clearly knows
that it's loading two keys.
keychain ~/.ssh/id_dsa ~/.ssh/identity
. ~/.keychain/$(uname -n)-sh
Despite this, both keys seem to work fine. Can someone explain this?
