It sounds like sshd is lacking the "Interact With Desktop flag". You can
either remove and reinstall the service with cygrunsrv (and add the -i
flag when you reinstall), or open the "Cygwin sshd" Windows service
Properties and check the "Allow service to interact with desktop" box in
the "Log On" tab.
