I should have said, I've had those tools installed with my original
install of cygwin, but I just never activated them until today. As far
as creating a group "root", I have never seen cygwin do that
automagically. New thing?

No.  That's a message from the OpenSSH source that really isn't right
for Cygwin.  When you see 'root', think the user the 'sshd' server
runs under (i.e. 'cyg-server' if the default is used) for Cygwin.
