Sorry, I don't know what's going on. Did you ever try `ssh -v'?
The debug output created by that command might give a hint. If
that's not enough you should create a batch file which is started
as `sshd' service and that batch file starts

    `C:\Cygwin\usr\sbin\sshd -d > C:\cygwin\tmp\sshd.dbgout'

This works only once each try and you would have to restart the
service for the next try but afterwards you have lots of output
from sshd and it probably explains the reason.
