I've tried restarting both SSHD and the entire box itself. Here's
what I get in my log when I try and connect:

Feb 28 13:37:32 ccmf1 PAM_pwdb[12705]: authentication failure;
(uid=0) -> someuser for login service
Feb 28 13:37:34 ccmf1 login[12705]: FAILED LOGIN 1 FROM AN.IP.ADDRESS
FOR someuser, Authentication failure
Feb 28 13:37:37 ccmf1 PAM_pwdb[12705]: (login) session opened for
user someuser by (uid=0)
Feb 28 13:37:53 ccmf1 PAM_pwdb[12721]: authentication failure;
(uid=0) -> someuser for sshd service
Feb 28 13:37:53 ccmf1 sshd[12721]: Failed password for someuser from
AN.IP.ADDRESS port 49252
Feb 28 13:37:55 ccmf1 sshd[12721]: Received disconnect: Session
canceled by user

I've removed the userID and IP addresses from this just for
security's sake. Is this something wrong with PAM maybe?
