I am having the exact same issue. I installed cygwin with very basic
configuration (added ssh, rsync and vim). 

The odd thing about this is: when user/password prompt is enabled and
entered manually, it logs in without any problems. The error comes up when
the public key authentication is used. Unfortunately, for my application, I
really need the key auth.

It seems to be a recent problem, there are very little google results about
this issue...

Happy X-mas!
