If SSH_AUTH_PASSWORD is disabled on an SSH-1 server (e.g. by setting "PasswordAuthentication no" in OpenSSH), and PuTTY isn't configured to try any other authentication type, it sends a password anyway and reports that it failed. It should notice from SSH_MSG_PUBLIC_KEY that the server doesn't support password authentication, and not attempt it.
