My apologies for losing track of this. The issue is that StarCluster cannot login as root most likely due to your AMI being configured to disallow root login over SSH by default. Depending on which AMI you were using the fix may vary.
Most Ubuntu/Redhat based AMIs by now use cloudinit. IIRC by default cloudinit modifies root's authorized_keys to disable SSH login for root. If in fact your base AMI was using cloudinit (which it most likely was) then the upcoming 0.94 version of StarCluster should fix this issue by enabling root login via the master's userdata (assuming you launch the image host with StarCluster).
