I had the very same problem during the last weeks. I kept trying and
testing and in the end i finally had working ACLs (hooray!), but this
didn't help. I created a file from Windows and set the permissions
really restrictive (like "0600", no access to anyone but me). OpenSSH
still complained.

My "solution": Putty. Runs perfectly now. Make sure to download the
puttygen packet if you want to use your existing ssh keys - the program
converts them to .ppk keys used in putty. Couldn't find any downsides
except for the key conversion.
