I'd run strace on it.
When I do
  strace -f ssh -vv -4 -2 -l joostje muso.komputilo.org 2>strace.txt
then I see in strace.txt:
write(2, "debug2: service_accept: ssh-user"..., 38debug2:
service_accept: ssh-userauth
) = 38
write(2, "debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_ACCEPT "..., 42debug1:
) = 42
write(2, "debug2: key: /home/joostje/.ssh/"..., 48debug2: key:
/home/joostje/.ssh/id_rsa ((nil))
) = 48
write(2, "debug2: key: /home/joostje/.ssh/"..., 51debug2: key:
/home/joostje/.ssh/id_dsa (0x55dff0)
) = 51
write(3, "o\243\302\260\251\5\264\215o\'}3N\341\354\225\'\215\213"..., 64) = 64
select(4, [3], NULL, NULL, NULL)        = 1 (in [3])
read(3, "d\265\232\322\'\v\215Md\370.t\2511\353\274\267G\212L\302"...,
8192) = 64
write(2, "debug1: Authentications that can"..., 63debug1:
Authentications that can continue: publickey,password
) = 63
In other words, my ssh writes two more debug statements right after
the last debug statements you see, without any system calls in

So, basically, it seems like it is 'impossible' for ssh to hang just
at that point...
Would be interesting to see the strace output of your ssh.

After that it starts to write to fd 3, witch seems to be the
communication socket to the SSH server.

My versions:
ii  openssh-client           4.3p2-9                  Secure shell
client, an rlogin/rsh/rcp replacement
ii  openssh-server           4.3p2-9                  Secure shell
server, an rshd replacement
ii  openssl                  0.9.8c-4etch1            Secure Socket
Layer (SSL) binary and related cryptographic tools
