Strictly speaking, in one case you are connecting to columbia and in the
second case *as steve* to columbia. Depending on the contents of
~/.ssh/config, those two operations may not be exactly the same.

Something is causing the ssh client on pacifica to not prompt you for
your credentials, and I can't really imagine what it might be. Take a
look in /etc/ssh/ssh_config and ~/.ssh/config - post them here if you
see anything you don't understand.

On another note: Do you really keep a copy of your private key on each
of those systems? I strongly recommend you only keep a copy on your
workstation and use authentication forwarding to reach other systems.

I prefer the dark of the night, after midnight and before four-thirty,
when it's more bare, more hollow.                http://a.mongers.org
