Thanks for the reply. A manual power cycle ended up doing the trick.
Looking through /var/log/messages I see a lot of messages (much more
than normal) from Shorewall (a firewall managing iptables) before the
power cycle and none afterward. I think the problem was shorewall
becoming misconfigured and cutting off ssh connections, rather than
anything with sshd.
