ENABLE password via SSH?

I am re-configuring a 5524. I set up SSH and generated RSA and DSA keys.
I set the switch password to level 15
I set the Enable Password to level 15.
I disabled telnet and http.

When I use putty to SSH to the switch, I receive a prompt

login as:

If I hit return I get

User name:

I enter the switch username and the password and am automatically placed in Privileged EXEC mode (switch 1#)?
How do I set the switch so that I need to enter the switch User Name and password, and the enable password to get to Privileged EXEC mode?

Re: ENABLE password via SSH?

The Enable password part of the config should of done the trick. Could you please post up the running config? I can help look through it for any suggested changes.
