This is probable a bug in SSH.

The non-free SSH's ssh-keygen once had a bug which caused it to
occasionally generate RSA keys which had their Most Significant Bit
unset. These keys are beeing advertised as being full-length, but are
actually one bit shorter...

Upgrade ssh and regenerate your keys. That should fix it!
