SSH Key Refused

Eclipse SSH integration wizard is magical. You provide the host name
and login information. The wizard uses a password-based login to
transfer your public key to your home directory (including creating
the .ssh folder) as the authorized_keys file. Then your CVS interface
from Eclipse just works.

Unfortunately I get a "Key Refused" error when trying to use command
line CVS with the putty SSH implementation. I registered my private
key (generated with puttygen) with pageant, then try to connect with
plink. In verbose mode this is what I get. Note that after "Key
Refused" my password is manually typed in and accepted. That is why
CVS fails because it cannot handle the password request. My public key
was appended to my authorized_keys file so it should be able to
authenticate without a password. Pageant caches access to my private
key so the authentication should work with no passwords.

Welcome to Darwin!

Side note: the key Eclipse put in authorized_keys is a binary blob
rather than the text based key generated by puttygen. Not sure what
the deal is there. I am generating SSH2 DSA keys.
