This is strange, really.  I just set up a Windows 8.1 machine with
two services, one called sshd64 in 64 bit Cygwin, running under my
usual AD account called cyg_server, listening on port 22 and one called
sshd in 32 bit Cygwin, running under the same cyg_server account,
listening on port 20022.  Both services work fine in parallel, and
password as wll as pubkey auth work as expected.

I have no idea what could be wrong in your environment, sorry.
