Can't get SSHD start ed after s uccessfull y running sshd-host- config‏


I'm having trouble getting the sshd service running under
cygwin.  I am running Cygwin on Windows XP SP3.  I have successfully
run ssh-host-config, however I get errors when I try and start the
service using cygrunsrv or net:

[fido ~]$ cygrunsrv --start sshd
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus:  Win32 error 1062:
The service has not been started.
[fido ~]$
[fido ~]$ net start sshd
The CYGWIN sshd service is starting.

The CYGWIN sshd service could not be started.

The service did not report an error.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3534.

[fido ~]$

Also, the sshd log is empty:
[fido ~]$ cat /var/log/sshd.log

[fido ~]$

piece of information that may be helpful is that I can't even get the
sshd executable to output any debug information, as it simply returns
silently.  i.e.

[fido ~]$ /usr/sbin/sshd -d -d -d -D

[fido ~]$ /usr/sbin/sshd -d
[fido ~]$

Here is my best attempt at an accounting of the settings that I have used:
1.  I installed cygwin packages for all users, Unix / binary file types
2.  I have installed the following Cygwin packages:

cygrunsrv 1.34-1
openssh 5.1p1-8
When running ssh-host-config, I accepted all defaults and chose to run
sshd under a separate account with limited permissions.

Please let me know if you need any more information.  I would appreciate any help that could be provided.
