OpenSSH public key permissions

When using the OpenSSH server, if you want to log in remotely using a public/private key pair, there are many requirements on the permissions of files and directories. One that is relatively badly documented (and that bit me once) is that the home directory of the user on the server needs to have permissions 755, not 775.
