I don't know how this can happen but I have "SSH-1.99-OpenSSH_3.7.1p2"
And before I had "SSH-1.99-OpenSSH_3.7.1p1", and I have always used the same key generated by PuttyGen, never had problems with it, try this :
Generate the key with ssh_keygen -b 1024 - t rsa or what ever, take the public key and paste it in authorized_keys and set the chmod 400 on the file
Then load then try to load the private key generated by ssh_keygen into PuttyGen, see if this helps ... if not , I have no clue what to say as I am using it myself without any problem ... try using the latest version of PuttyGen and Putty and Putty Agent
Take care and g'luck

Cut and paste the contain of the in PuTTyGen field named " Public key for pasting into OpenSSH authorized_keys2 file:" and not use the key saved with the "Save public key " button which is specific to SSH and not OpenSSH (in my memory).
