I've reproduced the slow ssh login problem on: Intrepid Minimal CD Install + ssh

There's no apparent avahi/mdns installed or activated

In that configuration, "-o GSSAPIAuthentication=no" on the client command line has no effect, nor does setting it in the server's ssh_config file (though why that would change anything, I have no idea). The only way to suppress the delay seems to be to put

UseDNS no

in the server's /etc/ssh/sshd_config
