I spoke too soon. When I restored "UsePrivilegeSeparation yes" and restarted Windows, ssh connections failed again. This time the client log was:

C:\Documents and Settings\rdhw>ssh -vv

debug2: fd 3 setting O_NONBLOCK

... and there it hung, for ever. There were three sshd processes also doing nothing. No errors appeared in the Application Event Log.
