NET:SSH fails authentification with :keys - ssh works

hi,

i can’t get my head around this:

Net::SSH.start(“url.i.need.com”, ‘root’, :keys => ["/path/to/keyfile"],
:verbose => Logger::DEBUG ) do |ssh|
ssh.exec!(“mount /persistent”)
end

gives me failed authetification and

E, [2010-02-19T20:38:31.198582 #1494] ERROR –
net.ssh.authentication.session[80c6f360]: all authorization methods
failed (tried publickey, hostbased, password, keyboard-interactive)

but i can easily do

ssh -i /path/to/keyfile [email protected]

and i log in without a glitch.

any idea what could be going wrong here? many thanks in advance.
