Are the two machines on the same network segment, or are they remote?  Do you 
have IPFW rulesets enabled on either, particularly dynamic ones?  Running sshd 
with -vvv will help, as others have suggested, although you might also 
consider running "tcpdump -Xvn host foo and port 22" and see what you see...
