The bundled libssh2 in CVS fails to work under Windows.
You can connect, but the function "ssh2_auth_pubkey_file" fails always.

If you use the latest libssh2, you can use this function without a problem.

BTW: your PHP versions are out of date (I'm using 5.2.8).

Reproduce code:
$connection = ssh2_connect('', 22, array('hostkey'=>'ssh-rsa'));

if (ssh2_auth_pubkey_file($connection, 'username',
                          '/home/username/.ssh/id_rsa', 'secret')) {
  echo "Public Key Authentication Successful\n";
} else {
  die('Public Key Authentication Failed');

Expected result:
on my server: I expect "Public Key Authentication Successful"

Actual result:
A warning that the authentication failed and "Public Key Authentication Failed"

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the
end of next Sunday (CET) on

In case this was a website problem, the change will show
up on the website in short time.
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PECL better.

I have updated the bundled libssh2 to version 1.0 for Windows builds.
