Sorry, I should have given more detail. When I scp from computer A to
B, the copy succeeds, but it places it in c:\Program

I've seen that explanation. HOME is set to /home/ryan on both boxes,
but this seems to be deeper than just how HOME is set, because a
/home/ryan exists in both c:\Program Files\Git (wrong place) and
c:\cygwin (right place). Why would cygwin put /home in a different
place when I use scp?

To make sure my problem is clear, given computers A and B, both with
cygwin installed in the same place:
from A:
ssh B -> bash shell in c:\cygwin\home\ryan
scp B -> file goes to c:\Program Files\Git\home\ryan

from B:
ssh A -> bash shell in c:\cygwin\home\ryan
scp A -> file goes to c:\cygwin\home\ryan
