A missing password is likely your problem, since that's at the heart of

a service as the user you'll log in as is really just a workaround.
I was thinking more of:
Using the passwd -R bit did not change the behavior. I still am unable to

unfortunately, is not under my control).
However, I set up the share using net use \\IP\share /savecreds, and that
does mount the drive to Windows at least every time without prompting, and
Cygwin locally is able to use it. It is only an issue with the SSH
