Normal. The only thing I see there are errors when I make an error
Usually sshd sends messages to the Windows Application Event log. I'm
syslogd-ng so that messages go to /var/log/messages.
That's right, I had looked at it and completely forgot to mention it. But my
Event Log doesn't add anyting to our discussion: there are only log entries
`sshd' service started
`sshd' service stopped, exit status: 0
`sshd' service stopped, exit status: 255
sshd: PID XXXX: Server listening on 0.0.0.0 port 22
sshd: PID XXXX: Received signal 15; terminating
I think the exit status may vary because sometimes I stop the service and
sometimes I kill the process via Task Manager.

Not yet, could you show the rest of that output? or the end, to see where
Well, no further output, just a line containing that and then back to the
shell. Before that there is a lot of debugging messages (mostly complaining
about ~/.ssh/id_rsa contents), as I've transcribed in my previous post.
Some ideas: are you running anything on your ~/.profile or equivalent file?
Well, I thought about that. I made a backup of my home directory and tried
with a completely blank one, but still no success.
what shell do you use?
bash. By the way, all entries of /etc/passwd point to /bin/bash, except for
the group entries, "SYSTEM" and "Administradores" (which means
"Administrators"), which point to no shell.
can you try a user with a home in an NTFS partition? (I
don't know if FAT32 is the problem because I don't use that)
Yes, I'll try that. This will require some time because I have to
repartition my HD, but it worths the try. By the way, should I try a
complete cygwin installation under NTFS?
Please keep your replies on the list, the more people that see them the
the probability that someone will spot the problem.
Oops, sorry: I had blindly clicked on "Reply".
