Mmmph - I have that Monday morning feeling, too.

The wiki article says:
"LibSSH2 library. Pascal bindings still in development, but you can use
a file with your private key (in OpenSSH format) to authenticate. "
but you tried that and it didn't work - you *did* export the puttygen
private key file in openssh format, not the default putty format!?

I thought I had an example with libssh2+certificate auth lying around
somewhere but apparently I haven't, so that's about all I can say, sorry.
