I have the default sshd_config.  Doing a ssh localhost on host works, both with password authentication and with public key authentication after running ssh-user-config on the host.  So I would say that yes sshd_config is configured to do public key authentication.

I have looked at /etc/passwd and /etc/group on the host and client machines.  The Sid match for the group and userid that I am using.  Other portions of Cygwin act correctly for my domain userid on both the host and the client machines.  So I think that /etc/passwd and /etc/group are OK.  Is there anything specific I should be checking in these files?

I am off on vacation for a week now, so I will not be able to progress this problem until 24 October 2011.
