I haven't seen lower level debugging, but I may have just missed it.

1) What happens if you run "telnet yourhost 22".
   (you might need to install "telnet" on your client machine)
   Do you see something like
     Connected to yourhost (
     Escape character is '^]'.
   or do you see
     telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
   or do you see
     Connected to yourhost (
     Escape character is '^]'.
     Connection closed by foreign host.

2) How quickly does the "closed" occur?

3) What is the output of "ssh -v yourhost"
