Followup: 1.3.17: sshd closes terminal immediately after establishingconnection (1.3.13 ? 1.3.14)

Hello, everybody,

I want to followup on this problem. It is still not solved,
but I have found some time to investigate the problem, and
it surely has to do with the cygwin1.dll.

I downloaded all the archives of cygwin that I was able to
find, unfortunately the 1.3.13 was not available anymore on
my mirrors.

Then with some tweaking of the setup.ini file, I could
persuade setup.exe to install the cygwin version that I
wanted to have.

The problem remains the same. When I run sshd using cygwin
1.3.12, I am able to connect remotely, when I use any of the
 version 1.3.14, 1.3.15, 1.3.16, 1.3.17, the connection is
immediately closed after logging on. I know that upgrading
OpenSSH will not help, because when I first experienced the
problems, I had done a complete upgrade around cygwin 1.3.17.

- Output of cygcheck -c -s -v

After upgrading from cygwin 1.3.12 to 1.3.17 (also tried 1.3.16, same 
I cannot establish a remote session anymore.

When running ssh -v some-address to the server with cygwin 1.3.17  and
sshd 3.5-p1, the session is first established (I get login messages), but 
immediately closed. On the client side I get the following message :

debug1: permanently_set_uid: 45090/10513
setuid 45090: Permission denied

I have searched and found some answers, but they all rely on the fact that
one has Administrator rights on his WinNT/2000 box, but in our case that 
not possible, so I have to run the sshd as a specific user, and I also can
not install sshd as a service. This was no problem with previous version 
Cygwin and sshd, so I hope that somehow this possibility has not 
from either OpenSSH or Cygwin.
