That looks like the HP-supplied package (and an old version at that).  Can you
reproduce your problem with the vanilla source from http://openssh.com?

>    #touch authorized_keys
>    #chmod 777 authorized_keys 

This is probably the source of your problem and is a really bad idea.  Your
authorized keys files should not be writeable by anyone other than the owner
(mode 755 or better yet 700).

You can disable this check with the StrictModes sshd_config option but that's
also a bad idea; better you fix your file permissions.
