If it's permitted by your policy, you can run sshd on a non-standard port on the
loopback and get the debug trace that way ("/path/to/sshd -ddd -o

Alternatively, if it would permit running some code as root that's not a network
service then you could use my PAM test tool:

The "-a" option approximates what sshd does for public-key authentications, and
the "-s" option lets you test alternate PAM service names without affecting the
production ones.  It may give enough information to figure out what's going on.
 Something like this ought to do it:
# ./pam-test-harness -s sshd -a -u youruser

Caveat: it does not implement an "echo off" so it will echo any passwords to the
tty.  Remove anything sensitive before sending (and beware of shoulder-surfers :-)

If neither of the above is the case then I'm out of options and we'll wait for
the debug output.
