Check your sshd_conf for some lines that look like:

# Change to no to disable s/key passwords
#ChallengeResponseAuthentication no

That second line is probably commented out in your sshd_conf
file.  See what happens if you un-comment it (ie, just remove
the '#').  I think you're tripping over a minor bug in sshd,
which is fixed in later versions.  It thinks you want S/Key
authentication, even though you're not set up for it.
