OK, I don't know what is going on here, but I'm pretty certain that something in 10.6.1 is causing ssh to timeout. I first started having an issue with my MBP last week, and thought that it was some kind of weird config issue. But it just started happening on Mac Pro as well. And I just upgraded to 10.6.1. And then I realized that the MBP troubles started when I installed 10.6.1 on that machine last week. I'm just going right to a timeout. I can ping, etc.. Does anyone know of any changes in ssh beyond the official release notes? Any ideas about how I can track this down further?
