I actually found the problem.. was planning to send note to list, but
looking into another issue and got caught up. :-(
The rights of the .ssh directory were wrong.
I needs to be 700. I just wish sshd would say something about it..
somewhere.. anywhere.. It's near trivial to fix, yet it could be a few
