Just in case, I will mention a bug I encountered a month or two back.
I could ssh into a machine to run commands, ie ssh ls -l worked, but I
could not ssh in to get an interactive login shell. It turns out that
app-accessibility/sphinx3 was installing a bogus libutil in /usr/lib,
overriding the real glibc libutil in /lib, and borking everything.
See bug #145667 for details. The workaround has been to replace the
bogus libs with symlinks to the real ones.
This does not sound like your problem, but I figure it can't hurt to
at least throw it out for you to throw away :-)
