That's the correct thing to do, even though you made this unnecessarily
hard for yourself by mounting your home directory with "noacl".

I don't think ssh should use files that are accessible by somebody
else.  The noacl mount option is sometimes useful, but certainly not in
this situation, as you found out.

The effective access rights as shown by icacls or similar tools should
tell you what is going on.  If the directory is not readable, then the
file is effectively inaccessible I think.
