Thanks to all who took the time to read my e-mail or read my e-mail
and repsond to it.
The answer was in http://www.openssh.com/faq.html (#3.14) :
... it can be solved by executing the following on the server:
$ chmod 600 $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys
BTW, there was at least one typo, if only in my e-mail, sorry.
I take it that sshd does not care for the Australian spelling of
'authorized' with an 's'.
I have also foundd that the /etc/hosts.equiv entries are now redundant
so I have removed them and have unset the HostbasedAuthentication
flag in sshd_config.
