I had the weirdest issues because two VOIP boxes decided that they 
should have the same MAC address. I'm not even sure how to track this 
kind of problem down since I found it by accident.

Back on topic... My OpenIndiana ssh service seems to take a long time to 
connect with a client (long delay before the password prompt is 
displayed).  It happens most of the time and feels like a network 
timeout issue.  How can I figure out what it's waiting for?
