Output of ssh -v

  Attempting to ssh (using a key) into a machine that has correct .ssh
  folder permissions but incorrect home directory permissions results
  unexpected behaviour. Instead of logging a message about incorrect 
  permissions, it logs attempts to try keyfiles that don't exist 
  interspersed with messages about which auth methods can continue.

Steps to Reproduce
  1) Set up (rsa) keys between client and server normally.
  2) Set server home directory to world writable.
  3) Attempt to ssh to the server.

Expected Results
  Fails to password, but prints a line in the verbose output about the
  reason being incorrect .ssh parent folder permissions.

Actual Results
  Asks for a password to log in. Verbose mode shows that it is trying a
  several keys that both exist and don't exist, printing a message 
  about what auth modes are allowed, but no information about incorrect
