Maybe there's some confusion here... 'without-password' does not mean
what you might think it means... it simply means that sshd will ONLY
accept logins via the (e.g.) authorized_keys file. 'without-password'
means that no manual password entry will be acceptedd, not that you
can login to a passwordless account.
