First: did you run mergemaster?

I remember somewhere after 4.6 I was experiencing the same problem.
It had to do with the PAMification of ssh and caused sshd to refuse any
new connections. I believe killing the sshd parent process and restarting
it solved it for me, without losing my existing connection.
Just for cases like this I usually keep another ssh daemon running 
(usually the non-commercial version of www.ssh.org) on a nonstandard port
or I enable a thouroughly wrapped and firewalled telnetd, just in case.
