Created droplet with Ubuntu 14.04 32 bits with SSH keys.
Using putty client on Windows 7

There are no error messages in /var/log/auth.log
Screen output: Using username “root”. Authenticating with public key “rsa-key-blah…” Passphrase for key “rsa-key-blah…”: Welcome to Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.13.0-37-generic i686)
