You're using OpenSSH?  (looks like it but you don't say)

I suspect you corrupted the key while copying it into authorized_keys.
Depending on exactly how it was corrupted, earlier versions of OpenSSH
didn't handle that well and would abort the connection.  This has been
fixed for a while.

You can prevent you client from trying public-key authentication
which will probably let you log in ok.  For OpenSSH, this is
"ssh -oPreferredAuthentications=password yourserver" (or possibly
keyboard-interactive instead of password).  For other clients it will
probably be different.

usually comes from bad judgement.
