cygrunsrv does not start sshd in 1 out of 40 installs


we do run some 200 systems here on which we installed part of the cygwin
suite to maintain our systems. On some of them, cygrunsrv will not start the
sshd (for softwareversions please see below). Playing a bit with sshd, we
are able to get it started and working with invoker.exe
( without problems. Haveing had
this problems since quite some time, we did some testing. According to this,
sshd never gets started at all, but cygrunsrv just sits there and waits
until a timeout occurs. The error getting logged to the eventlog is:

Event Type:	Error
Event Source:	Service Control Manager
Event Category:	None
Event ID:	7000
Date:		2/12/2002
Time:		4:39:58 PM
User:		N/A
Computer:	mycomputer
The OpenSSH service failed to start due to the following error: 
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely

doing it using the service manager you will get a pop up containing:
Could not start the OpenSSH service on Local Computer.
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a
timely fashion.  

As I do not have access to the source, is there anybody, who either has
access to the source, so we can try to find out the reason or likes to
investigate this ?

Thanks for your help.

Windows: NT4 SP6a and Win2K 
Cygwin: all release, upgrading to the latest cygwin.dll did not help, here
are the versions of one machine as an example:
cygrunsrv           0.94-2
cygutils            0.9.7-1
cygwin              1.3.6-6
openssh             3.0.2p1-4
openssl             0.9.6b-2

Mit besten Grüssen, 
Kind regards,
