I can't reproduce this on Linux (Redhat 9, Fedora Core1 and Gentoo) at all:

jason at sith jason $ pwd
jason at sith jason $ id
uid=500(jason) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),10(wheel)
jason at sith jason $ su -
sith root # cd .ssh/
sith .ssh # ls
sith .ssh # ssh-keygen -b 2048 -t dsa
sith .ssh # ls
id_dsa  id_dsa.pub  known_hosts
sith .ssh # scp id_dsa.pub root at banshee:/root
root at banshee's password:
id_dsa.pub                                    100% 1111     0.0KB/s   00:00
sith .ssh # exit

[root at banshee root]# ls
anaconda-ks.cfg  id_dsa.pub  install.log  install.log.syslog  mail  sslcert
[root at banshee root]# cat id_dsa.pub >> .ssh/authorized_keys2
[root at banshee root]#

jason at sith jason $ ssh root at banshee
root at banshee's password:

Are you sure you're not somehow still logged in as root or have root's key
somehow stored in your SSH Agent?
