Re: ssh pubkey exchange failing at send_pubkey_test

You've tried to use network profile folder to store authorised_keys, which is
not accessible to NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account.

Sorry for my terrible english...
Thanks, that with the debug option was what I needed. It says in essence:
debug1: test whether pkalg/pkblob are acceptable [preauth]
debug1: temporarily_use_uid: 1000/513 (e=18/544)
seteuid 1000: Permission denied
debug1: do_cleanup
mm_log_handler: write: Broken pipe

So the creation of the euid is not permitted, and this probably relates to privileges granted by windows, W7 in particular.
Now I have something to hack at. I'll report whether I had success, or I might need to bother you again.
Great many thanks to Larry, Andrew and Andrey
