Wow, you had an authorized_keys2 file? That was deprecated in OpenSSH 3.0

Your setup must have been copied along for quite some time.

My guess is that OpenSSH finally removed support of it (although I'd
have guessed the support would have been removed long ago), as part
of the general cleanup. The changeover happened eons ago, so they
probably figured nobody had that version any longer.
