That suggests an earlier (Cygwin-install-time) error, doesn't it?

I should have said I did exactly _no_ group/permission by-hand
fiddling to get the setup I sent.  All happened auto-magically as a
result of basic install.  Looking at my download area, I see I
installed cygwin, cygrunsrv and openssh all as part of my initial
install.  I can't immediately detect any sign of what initialisations
ran in what order -- /etc/sshd_config was built about an hour after
the downloads. . .
