Damn, that was simple. /var/log/secure tells it in plain language:
> Authentication refused: bad ownership or modes for directory /var/www/railsdev

(that is the home dir for the user git). The perms were:
$ ls -ld /var/www/railsdev
drwxrws--- 5 git apache 4096 Feb 12 10:52 railsdev/

I did chmod g-w, and the key auth started to work! Thanks.
