shared ssh key)

Further test, which I missed earlier for some unknown reason, was to create an
ssh key for a non-root user, copy to the target server, and try a key
authenticated login with the non-root user... worked perfectly.
As such, the problem does not appear to be with the ssh key login, but with the
fact that it is a root login. I am focusing my efforts there. Any idea as to
why the server would not allow root login given that we have already checked
"PermitRootLogin yes" for the sshd_config. Is there another location or entry
which would be preventing root logins?
