Beware that 'PermitRootLogin forced-commands-only' was broken in
1:3.4p1-1, the version of ssh in stable. It was fixed in 1:3.5p1-1. See
bug #166184.

I haven't investigated your problem deeply enough to know if that's
definitely the cause (sorry, work Christmas parties don't leave me
entirely sober), but it seems like a pretty good candidate. Vineet's
reply could be part of it too.
