Perhaps. I find this interesting though.

U:\>sftp -v -v -v
Connecting to
OpenSSH_5.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0
debug1: Connecting to [] port 22.

If I do the same thing, though I'm in bash, I get this line first:

debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config

I have to use control-C to stop this, as it hangs after the 'connecting
to' line.

This problem is independent of where I am connecting to.

Really. So you could debug on the server side then and see if there's any interaction. If not, it sounds like this is a problem with an outgoing firewall block or other BLODA <>.
