"premature exit: string too long"

I´m using dropbear 0.48.1 and have a little problem with the public/private
I generated the public and private keys with dropbearkey and copied the public
key to "/etc/dropbear/dropbear_rsa_host_key" (on the SERVER, where 'dropbear'
is running/should run). This file is readable and writeable only to user
root. The content is: ssh-rsa
(without any linebreaks or anything else)
Do I have to append username at host or anything else?
When i want to start dropbear (with 'dropbear'), i get the following message:
"premature exit: string too long".
I think i missunderstood something essential in public-key-authentication. Is
there a howto where to put which key when using dropbear?
I found something like that:
"To create a new RSA key to store in /.ssh/id_rsa.db, you can use the
dropbearkey -t rsa -f ~/.ssh/id\_rsa.db
The public key part of the new key will be printed to the screen. You can put
it into the /.ssh/authorized_keys file on all machines where you want to be
able to login using your new private key stored in /.ssh/id_rsa.db"
But that doesn´t work either...
Thanks in advance for your help
