Authenticated with partial success ?

Hi all,

I've got the following problem when connecting to a SSH server version 2.0.13 
with dsa public key authentication. Instead of logging in I get 
"Authenticated with partial success". I attached the complete output of 
"ssh -v".

The interesting part: This only happens when connecting from one special 
machine (running SuSE 8.0, OpenSSH 3.4p1). From any other machine (running 
the same version of OpenSSH) I can log in without problems. Even copying a 
proven to work key-pair to that machine does not help.

Whats wrong? Am I missing something?
