Summary: (Pseudo)random authentication failures with public key

Initial Comment:
Hi there.

Just to track down the problem of the libssh2 with public-key authorization that leads sometimes to a failure.

[libssh2] Failure Event: -19 - Invalid signature for supplied public key, or bad username/public key combination

It appears to be mentioned in libcurl but not here: it happens once every 100-150 retries.
I've attached libssh2 logs for both successful and unsuccesful cases.
Hope that someone with time/competence on this pieces of code could give a hand.

Too old. If this still happens, file a new bug report and include details
such as version number, crypto library and version and operating system.
