You should check the Event Log on the host machine, since any errors
would be displayed there.

What it sounds like is that the service is starting before some other
required networking component has started.  As part of the XP bootup
time optimizations a lot of stuff is launched in parallel.  You might
try setting 'tcpip' as a startup dependency of the sshd service to see
if it fixes things.
