The ssh command and its response are just a cut and paste of the bash screen.  
Trying to execute ssh -v ncc-1701 gives exactly the same results (note there 
is no -v option in the displayed list).

I've attached a new cygcheck output (-svr) as you suggested.  One thing I 
noted was that the uname -a output says I have Cygwin 1.7.1 and this confuses 
me.  I've updated on a regular basis and reboot whenever the installation 
requests me to do so.  I should have the 1.7.7-1 release.  The cygcheck seems 
to have differing 1.7* information.  Is there some magic translation I need to 
know of to get the correct release number?
