Does your /dev include device files for console, null, zero, and tty?
This is an occasional issue.  'MAKEDEV console null zero tty' should
create these.  Check also permissions on these and pty files.  Ensure
/dev/pty is being mounted.

Also try the '-t' (force pty allocation) and '-v' (multiple times for
more verbose output) options to ssh.

Any sshd log output on the remote host would be useful.

xm console to the system would be useful.
