OpenSsh 3.6.1 on Netware, public keys

I'm having a strange issue here that I was hoping someone can shed light on.
Our Netware admin and I are working on using scp to transfer some files from a
Solaris 9 Box to a Netware 6.5 server.
We turned on the SSH service on the Netware server, had to muck with the
sshd_config file a little. The actual scp works fine (kinda). Except for that
even on a successful transfer it gives a RC=1 !?!?!
Anyway, the real issue is that we can't get the public key authentication to
stay working. I can do the scp only ONCE after restarting the sshd service on
the Netware box. The second try and all subsequent attempts fail with a
Public Key failure message.
Yes I can log in successfully with a password, but I need to be able to script
this, hence the reason for the key authentication..
To even get the public key authentication to work even the first time, we had
to change STRICT MODES to NO in the sshd_config, I gather because of the
wierd file permissions on the Novell box.
We've tested this several times, only the first attempt after restarting sshd
does it allow the key authentication to work...
Any ideas anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
