Thanks for your suggestions. Actually I have had an inherited config
file, which is sound.
Just two weeks ago, I messed up the permission issue when I import
some other public keys into authorized_keys. I guess I did something
like chmod a+w * in .ssh directory. so the problem came out.

With someone's help (someone sent me off-list suggestions to check the
permission issue of this), which was something I barely realized to
examine.

Thanks again for your suggestions and others help,

Best regards,

lina
