I often find it more useful to temporarily run a second sshd on an
alternate port, with stderr directed to the console and sshd in
no-detach and debug mode. Try the following:

    $ sshd -d -d -d -e -D -p 222

Then watch the output as you try to connect on that port
    $ sshd myhost -p 222

If you'd like, you can redirect the output to a file, too, but I
find that screen(1)'s scrollback usually is enough for me.
