...running out of ammo...

may you check if the remote host sshd_config file has some non-default value set for "AuthorizedKeysFile"? It may be that the ssh server is looking for authorized keys in some place different than the home directory of the user being authenticated...

Nothing as such, I checked sshd_config. Infact this was working earlier and suddenly it stopped. I tried hard, but was not able to find the cause

Sorry pal,

it's weird that it suddenly stopped working.

Last shot in the dark could be generating another keypair (using solaris ssh implementation of ssh-keygen, not an openssh one), deliver the public key to the remote server and seeing if the problem is persistent with the new keys.

Have a nice weekend and Xmas time! I'll be offline in a few minutes.

see ya

Your key seems to be corrupted. Use ssh-keygen to make a new one.

if you want to set password than use the right way.
