hmm...maybe it'll be more helpfull if you wait until it actually
lock's on you and post that info.  it also may be a good idea to run a
tcpdump or ethereal (i think one of those utils is built into OSX's
network utilites package) while this is happening.  altho hopefully
something interesting will pop up in the ssh debug output.  also, are
you able to check the logs on the the server end to see if anything
makes it to there that may be of interest?
