Yes, it's probably exactly that. We experienced the same problem when trying to log into our debian box from a machine which didn't have a reverse DNS entry. (There must be a configuration option to sshd - we didn't need to solve it so I can't tell.)

I used to ssh from woody to potato witout reverse dns, it was a bit slow on the beginning, but it ended up working... maybe is has something to do with the (somewhat obscure to me) ALL: PARANOID in hosts.deny...
