I've tried all compinations: SSH1/SSH2, RSA/DSA, with/without Pageant. Everything works.

Does public key authentication work for you when you don't use Pageant?

With SSH2-RSA? With Pageant?

Does anyone have same problem?

It works fine for me. But naturally I will make some more tests. Thanks for letting me know.
