Check your nameservers (/etc/resolv.conf)...if SSH (telnet, ftp, etc. as
well) can't get a reverse DNS lookup for you, they tend to hang for quite
a while...especially if it can't contact the defined DNS's at all...

Why did this come to mind?  I just spent the last 5 minutes waiting for a
login prompt to a box 600 miles away (just installed this week) which got
it's resolv.conf munged =)
