Bad ownership of /?

this is one more unfortunate case, when I run into problems with some 
non-standard configuration: if authorized keys file for user %u is /keys/%u 
or /keys/%u/.ssh/authorized_keys, I receive an error: 
sshd: Authentication refused: bad ownership or modes for directory /

Whats the cure? I can't keep those files into /home easily...
