Actually, it is /home, I mounted it that way because I'm the only user on the system. 

% echo $HOME
% ls -l $HOME/.ssh
total 10
-rw-r--r--    1 BA3759   mkgroup_     1787 Aug 21 09:34 authorized_keys
-rw-r--r--    1 BA3759   mkgroup_     1152 Aug 21 09:38 config
-rw-------    1 BA3759   mkgroup_      887 Aug 20 17:00 id_rsa
-rw-r--r--    1 BA3759   mkgroup_      218 Aug 21 09:34
-rw-r--r--    1 BA3759   mkgroup_      230 Aug 20 20:39 known_hosts
-rw-------    1 BA3759   mkgroup_     1024 Aug 21 09:34 prng_seed
-rw-------    1 BA3759   mkgroup_      512 Aug 21 09:34 random_seed

And it only works with the IdentityFile line in the config. That's the same strange thing: It should 
default to $HOME/.ssh/id_rsa, but it does not. Just like the default $HOME/.ssh/config does not work.

They are all there, this was no complete directory listing, just to show that the necessary files are 

Still stuck...
