Thanks for your help Heather, but it was a network problem at my provider. Everything
works now without a change in my config.
But it was still weird that 1 remote user didn't work, and the others did.

I deleted them so i could test if they weren't currupted. But if i ssh to root@host1
as the same local user, it worked. In that case the ssh client didn't find the
keys either, but the remote host asked for the password.

i think the :1 stands for the x'th key in know_hosts, so it's the first key that matches
the remote host.

It hangs up after a loooong timeout ( 10 minutes or so). So i think it was
expecting some packets.

It couldn't be the client side permissions either, because with the same
local user i could ssh' to root@host1 and tester@host1.

yes but in when i looked multiple times, the send-q value didn't change. I don't
think there are always the same amount of packets in flight.
But now everything is fixed. Many thanks to my provider that made me go nuts :-),
and thanks to everybody on the mailinglist that tried to help me out.
