If the public key file passed to auth_publickey is empty the call fails with the error msg. "Out of memory!" I cannot seem to catch the exception with y try/catch block.

It's actually running out of memory, very very bad.

This is a bug on libssh2. A patch fixing it has been submitted. Thank you for reporting it.
