It is Samba 14.4.2 , but this shouldn't matter, ssh has nothing to do 
with Samba unless you are using kerberos, and I am not.

Fairly stock smb.conf, no GPO's that have anything to do with ssh (are 
there any ?)

That is trying to use kerberos (That isn't publickey, it isn't any key) 
and I haven't troubleshooted that yet, perhaps tomorrow. One question I 
do have, does Windows use GSSAPI ?

That is what GSSAPI is for
