No, it's not that.  I was able to reproduce the described behavior even 
when my system path has Cygwin's bin path before Windows.  Running 'sshd'
in debug mode showed the imported path that was not an exact match to any
path I'd set anywhere.  So far, I haven't been able to get far enough 
that I know why this happens.  But I can say that it happens for me
and on more than 1 system and O/S.
