You'll definitely want to look at keyring then.  It's a neat set of
scripts that handles keeping an agent running in the background so that
it's always there when you log in.

As I recall, though, it's difficult to get keyring to cooperate with GDM
though, so maybe not.  In any case starting up an ssh-agent when you log
in to B is the right way to do this.
