I have a home directory with a space in it. The space appears in the

supporting that in Cygwin. I had to create my home directories
manually so you might want to try doing the same thing.
I might want to try what same thing? Creating my home directory? I
assure you that /home/Andrew DeFaria exists. It has exists for quite
some time. By and large Cygwin's OK with it. Some things don't work with
it. ssh-user-config is just another one of those things...
(I could remake my home directory to not have a space in it however I'm
of the opinion that since space is a valid character for a filename that
programs should be coded to handle such cases).
Note I also tried:
$ ln -s "/home/Andrew DeFaria" /home/Andrew
and changing my home directory in /etc/passwd to /home/Andrew as well as
trying to use /home/Andrew~1 (the DOS mangled name for /home/Andrew
DeFaria) in /etc/passwd to no avail.
