First off, it's always a good idea to read and follow
<http://cygwin.com/problems.html>. Without the information requested
there, we don't know much about your system.
One immediate thing to check is whether the /usr/bin mount is correct on
your system: try changing your shell to /bin/zsh instead (/bin and
/usr/bin should point to the same directory on Cygwin). If that works,
fix your mounts.
Otherwise, since bash works for you, I suspect some sort of a permission
issue. Check the sshd logs. Also, try opening a "system-owned shell"
(Google for it to see how), and from there run
and see what output you get.
To follow up on my hunch, you might want to run "cygcheck /usr/bin/zsh"
and check the permissions on all the DLLs listed by that command.
