Fix broken SSH Public Key Authentication
Authored by: amusingfool on Sep 25, '07 08:12:19PM

Not only must the directory only be writable by you, but the private keys also need to be able to be read only by you.

I'd also echo what was said about passphrase-less keys. That's a bad way to go. Look into ssh-agent(1), and use that so that you only need to type it in once when you login.
