There's a MaxStartups parameter in /etc/ssh/sshd_config that limits
the number of unauthenticated connections. It defaults to 10.
Try increasing it and see if it fixes the problem. I don't think it's
a good idea to indiscriminately increase this parameter, but it may
help you diagnose what's going on.
