Another thing to check is the permission for your $HOME, make sure you don't have group or other W permissions. Better yet:

chmod 700 $HOME

Thanks, I was not aware of that before.

some more assumptions I don't think have been confirmed:
a) does The OPs _current_ private key match any of the _current_
.ssh/authorized_keys or .ssh/identity or .ssh/id_rsa
from the perspective of the client machine?

b) can the OP use the _current_ private key to ssh into 127.0.0.1 while logged into either of the
machines?  i.e. are the keys setup correctly at all?
