Oops!  My mistake, ll is an bash alias I defined, its just "ls -alhF
--color=tty" (actually is an alias that uses the alias ls is defined to,
but I included what both aliases do for simplicity).

No, autossh is something else, I just kept it to show you how a Windows
service looks, like the sshd.log you have.

No, just run the following to see if everything is running as expected:

cygrunsrv -LV

Note the "Account" for both sshd and syslog-ng.  That usually is what
gives problems.

If both where installed using the Cygwin provided scripts, perhaps with
some help as provided in /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/<package>.README, then
everything would work fine.  My guess is that there is a difference,
which creates the problem, and it will show in the output of cygrunsrv.
 If you send it to the list, we probably can spot the problem.
