[CentOS] SSH suddenly started failing :(

All of a sudden I can no longer ssh into my server running CentOS 4.5
This is what happens:
[john at lt-131-jdl-f7 ~]$ ssh -Y -p 2222 192.168.0.1
john at 192.168.0.1's password:
Connection to 192.168.0.1 closed by remote host.
Connection to 192.168.0.1 closed.
And yes, the account does exist and the password is correct!
Looking at the logs, I see this:
Jun 7 18:51:37 moray1 sshd(pam_unix): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=NODEVssh ruser= rhost=192.168.0.209 user=john
Jun 7 18:51:46 moray1 sshd: Accepted password for john from ::ffff:192.168.0.209 port 57755 ssh2
Jun 7 18:51:46 moray1 sshd(pam_unix): session opened for user john by (uid=500)
Jun 7 18:51:46 moray1 pam_loginuid: set_loginuid failed opening loginuid
Jun 7 18:51:46 moray1 pam_loginuid: set_loginuid failed
Does any of this make sense?
I've tried it on three different clients and get the same thing every time.
Jun 7 18:51:46 moray1 sshd: fatal: PAM session setup failed: Cannot make/remove an entry for the specified session
