I can't give a definitive answer but I had a similar problem recently. The reason I can't be definitive is that it just went away. It was though an agent problem and it started following some system upgrades and only showed itself on a single box and when being used non-interactively.
This doesn't look like your situation but it may be related.
Check for the existence of socket files in /tmp (along the lines of /tmp/ssh-????????/agent.??????), on a per user basis. Try to ssh using said socket file something along the lines of;
'SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/tmp/ssh-????????/agent.?????? ssh -p blah blah'
this worked for me, but as I say, it weirdly went away before I found the real underlying problem. I now don't need to use this mechanism, dunno why and I was too busy to continue to track it down.
Hope this helps.
