Hello, Brian,

Fancy running into you here... :-)

You have an older version of cygwin1.dll installed on your system.  The
new openssh package requires at least Cygwin 1.5.* to operate.  Once you
upgrade the "cygwin" package, you should have a working openssh.  All the
older packages should work fine with the new Cygwin version.
