ssh(d) "Failed keyboard-interactive/pam for invalid user"

One of my machines running:
FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT #0: Thu Aug 3 15:33:32 EDT 2006
has suddenly decided to deny all ssh connections, whether by
key-exchange or password.
When attempting the latter, this appears in auth.log:
Oct 3 22:47:44 jerusalem sshd: error: PAM: authentication error for illegal user <deleted> from bronze.lcs.mit.edu
Oct 3 22:47:44 jerusalem sshd: Failed keyboard-interactive/pam for invalid user <deleted> from 188.8.131.52 port 63059 ssh2
Thre's nothing relevant in /usr/src/UPDATING, and searching on
Google points to Samba-related stuff. I am running Samba, but fail
to understand how this can affect a non-Samba-related login.
Anyone willing to whap me with the clue-iron?
