Again, adding sshd_user to administrators group allows auto logon, but
groups that I see via the id command is not same as before sshing into
the box, nor the same if I do a manual login by typing in the password.

I believe you needed to fix this problem above before you tried using 
ssh to your box.  I don't know if the others saw your first message on 
the list before they saw your tape drive and ssh problem.  Would you 
please reply to the list with both your cygwin.dll version and the 
openssh version that you are using?  Depending on your the versions of 
these programs, and that you just installed ssh, you may be experiencing

the privilege separation problem.  Additional information is located 
here, if your versions match.
