(yet-unknown) server key, but just checking all possible locations, not
finding the key, and giving up.

I have seen a similar effect on a system that had a /dev/tty entry that
was not world-writeable (thus the ssh client couldn't open it to ask for
a confirmation).

The effect will also happen if you have "StrictHostKeyChecking yes" in
ssh_config - set that to "ask", otherwise it will fail if the key isn't
known in advance.
