OK, here's another thing in keys-command:

Unsafe AuthorizedKeysCommand: bad ownership or modes for directory /var/run

where /var/run and /var are owned by "bin" (uid 2)

$ ls -ldn /var /var/run
dr-xr-xr-x  28 2          2             8192 Aug 14  2004 /var
dr-xr-xr-x   2 2          2               96 Mar 11 12:16 /var/run

At least some revisions of AIX have a similar problem (/ is owned by "bin").

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
