Could this be a problem with reverse name lookups? We're using M$ as

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...
