I've been logging in to FreeBSD systems from OS X for years without 
issue.  I currently log into FreeBSD 4.9 and 5.3 from 10.3.5-8 systems. 
  I have not ever had to do anything strange on the OS X side nor on the 
FreeBSD side.

Can you run the FreeBSD sshd daemon in debug mode and see what it spits 
out at you when you attempt to log in?

Does this happen with all your OS X machines or just one in particular?
