It's normal. It's the parent sshd which has been started by
SRVANY and which has forked the daemon. It's not needed
anymore but for some reason SRVANY blocks that the process
can exit. if you stop the service (`net stop sshd') you
will see that SRVANY and the first sshd process have exited
but the daemon itself remains and is fully funtional.
