    I have the same problem.     ( I was using 5.2) does not seem to accept the id_rsa keys generated on previous version coming from a  level machine and all running AIX 5.3.    Is this a bug?  We moved back to 5.0 and all worked well.

    Thanks guys for posting this!  i am having the exact same problem with the public key.  I believe it's a bug.  We've spent hours trying to figure it out, and then i finally came back here and saw lissav's post.  Can anybody advise?  

    I will try to downgrade openssh.
