  • Turns out this was very old news [derkeiler.com]. I think what happened is that the authorized_keys2 file (and various other *2 files) were deprecated a long time ago (2001?); the OpenSSH programs continued to check for and recognize the files until recently, when someone finally decided to eliminate the cruft. I think I commend the design decision, although it has certainly caused me annoyance. :) My own fault for not keeping up, though.
