[Discuss] ssh with rsa keys and ldap

I have a situation using rsa keys from an ldap user id.
I have checked the permissions of my home directories, ~/.ssh, as well as
For instance,, I am logged into my laptop and ssh into the workstation at
my desk, and it always prompts me for my password.

On the same systems, I can ssh into an alternate user (ssh -l alt-user)
using the same rsa keys.

Also note that I can ssh into the BLU servers as my ldap user, but the BLU
servers use a local user name, So, there is some system setting on the
target machine (not SELINUX) that I am missing.
