It may be that sshd is doing name lookups for clients. Assuming that you
are not using any sort of hostname-based authentication, you should be
able to disable these lookups... consult your sshd documentation to see
how. (On mine, you set VerifyReverseMapping to No in the sshd_config
file and start the daemon with the -u0 option.)
