sshd refuses connections until I restart the daemon

Well, as I understand, there are 2 things:
1) The existing ssh daemon stops responding for unknown reasons while
2) There is a mechanism to start daemons via inetd, and there are sshd
lines commented out in it's config.
So you could try (I didn't try so the recommendation is purely
theoretical) uncomment sshd in /etc/inetd.conf, comment out
sshd_enable='YES" in /etc/rc.conf, add inetd_enable="YES" in
/etc/rc.conf (if not added) and reboot. It should create a new instance
of sshd every time you access the computer. Hopefully the new instance
