Perhaps IPv6 is enabled.  I had a few instances where I turned it off during
install, but found it enabled at runtime. I had assumed I was being careless
during install... but perhaps this a bug.

Check the interface using ifconfig to see what it's status is.

In terms of tools for debugging, I would use strace/truss after using the -v
switch to ssh.  Strace and truss will show you what system functions are
being called during application runtime (by the ssh client, in this case).
