By the time it writes that message, the failure has already happened. Look
further back to find the actual failure. Where was the system call that
tried and failed to get the RSA key?

Are all of the environment variables the same in both cases? Did the same
login scripts (or whatever) get executed? Are they using the same working
directory? Are the UIDs really the same? And so on... You know that
_something_ is different between the two cases -- it doesn't matter how
much is the same; it's what's different that counts.
