It still says 'Could not start the CYGWIN sshd service on \\SERVER. Error
2140: An internal Windows NT error occurred.' In the event log, there's this
message again:

 The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( sshd ) could not be found. It
 contains the following insertion string(s): sshd : PID 1009 : starting
 service `sshd' failed: execv: 255, error 255.

I tried adding '-d' to the sshd parameters, but that doesn't help (gives the
same error 255) - it seems to die earlier than that.

It does.
