FYI - ssh version is:
OpenSSH_5.4p1 FreeBSD-20100308, OpenSSL 0.9.8n 24 Mar 2010
And now I am using my own smtp not Gmail's blacklisted ones hopefully this message will actually make it to the list...

FYI I am seeing exactly the same issue. The -vv output on the client
shows running a huge number of commands (not totally sure if it
correlates to the number of entries in authorized_keys or just the
number preceding the matched key - I think it's the latter) and
judging by the pid of the command that finally ends up being run those
log entries are actually related to commands being run and abandoned.
It's like the forced command is executed prior to the key being
checked? Besides wasting resources it's potentially doing things you
don't expect (what if the command had a side effect) and slowing down
I assume it's not intended behaviour? Neither the command="command"
section of the ssh man page nor the ForceCommand section of
sshd_config make any reference to it so I presume not.
Let me know if I can provide any more useful info - I'm going to have
a quick hunt in the sshd code to see if I can find anything obvious,
but I'm not familiar with the code base so don't hold your breath.
