I've often found that the most informative answers come from using a couple of
-v options on the command line. For instance:

ssh -X -C -v -v -v marvin at heartofgold

Will give lots of debugging output, and help you to find the exact issue.
However, feel free to ask of me (or this list) what's happening. I would ask
only that you grab that output from that command up to the point of it asking
for your key, so we can help out more easily.
