I don't understand this description.  What accounts on what machine
from where?!?

The CYGWIN=tty setting is neither set by sshd itself, nor is it set by
the ssh-host-config script by default.  "Somebody" must have created
this manually.  It's probably a setting in the sshd server entry.  Look
for the service registry entry


If it's not set there, it could be set in ~/.ssh/environment, or in
~/.ssh/rc, or in the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file.  Alternatively it's a
setting done in the user's profile on the target machine.  Or in the
global Windows environment.
