This does seem weird, and as if the ssh client was not aware that
something goes wrong. Usually it would then continue with protocol
selection, identification, etc, that is:

ssh -v
OpenSSH_5.1p1 Debian-3ubuntu1, OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config

I guess you should verify somehow that the server works before spending
lots of time on a possible problem on your side.
