user logging in remotely must have a valid shell to be able to do
anything after they connect. If for example, as I normally do, give
users invalid shells such as /bin/false...they could use ssh to connect,
authenticate and get disconnected because they don't have a valid shell.
Are you sure you have a valid shell?

Also - sometimes the initial connection will take some time as the sshd
server will attempt to verify your hostname via dns

You shouldn't have to do any recompiling.
