I did this, roughly from memory, to solve the same problem:

rm -rf /var/lib/nxserver/nxhome/.ssh/
mkdir /var/lib/nxserver/nxhome/.ssh/
chmod 700 /var/lib/nxserver/nxhome/.ssh/
nxsetup --setup-nomachinekey
nxsetup --force --setup-nomachinekey

For me all those steps were necessary. I got this from #ltsp on irc.
Forgive me if the paths are slightly wrong. I'm doing this from memory,
but I think it's close to the target :=)

Hope this helps!
