Which package do you use for the "ssh command"? "M-x ssh" does not exist
in vanilla Emacs 23.

I've downloaded ssh.el from
<> and
yes, the behaviour is as described by you.

The reason is that ssh.el uses internally comint for starting the ssh
process. comint knows the possibility of Tramp to start processes on the
remote host.

When you start an ssh session via ssh.el, first you get a (hidden)
remote shell to the remote host by Tramp, because the default directory
of your current buffer is a remote one. This is the first password
request. Then, ssh is started on the remote host - this is the second
password request.

ssh.el shall be changed such a way, that the ssh session is started
always locally.
