I have OpenSSH running on my Karmic desktop. ssh localhost works fine. But if I try to ssh into it from a different computer on the same network, it rejects my password every time. What could be causing this?

I am experiencing a problem when logging into my account. I’m using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The scenario is when I turn on my computer the Log In screen pops up as it should, I enter my password and it rejects it as if it were wrong, I enter it again and it allows me to log in. The problem is it never accepts my password the first time.
sudo (Which I have configured to ask for a password) is rejecting my password (as if I mis-typed it) I am absolutely not typing it incorrectly. I have changed the password temporarily to alphabetic characters only, and it looks fine in plaintext, in the same terminal.
