Clueless! sshd ONLY fails at system startup (XP/SP3) ...


YES, I know, XP is NOT supported anymore ... However, I started
out on XP ... and it has sshd running as a Window service,

    installed and configured (as approved by Corinna :-)

... some time ago I may have upgraded openssh over there (yes, I
am now running W7) ... I cannot really remember. Yes, sometimes I
visit (ssh) the "old station" (XP) for info that I am missing.

(both machines are behind a firewall - rest assured)

"Suddenly" (yesterday?) I noticed that the "sshd daemon" fails;
it is started at system startup (i.e. an automatic service).

When the service is restarted after system startup, i.c.

    cygrunsrv -E sshd; cygrunsrv -S sshd

it then works flawlessly (which amazes me, given the error in
the sshd.log)

... tried several things ... in the end, I reinstalled Cygwin +
openssh (a minimal installation) -- using the time machine.

However this new, minimal installation of Cywin fails in the exact
same way!

Again tried some things ... Finally, I decided to post my problem.

Any suggestions? (Yes, XP has F-Secure as anti-virus)

The message in the sshd.log:

Server listening on port <X>.^M # X = some port, but not 22
1 [main] sshd 3152 E:\Cygwin25\usr\sbin\sshd.exe: *** fatal error in forked process - fork: can't reserve memory for parent stack 0x30000 - 0x230000, (child has 0x40000 - 0x240000), Win32 error 487 395874 [main] sshd 3152 cygwin_exception::open_stackdumpfile: Dumping stack trace to sshd.exe.stackdump 3 [main] sshd 536 fork: child -1 - forked process 3152 died unexpectedly, retry 0, exit code 0x100, errno 11
fork: Resource temporarily unavailable^M

Do I interpret this correctly? The child (sshd) fails to "allocate
stack for the parent (sshd)" ...

WHY does this only happen at system STARTUP ?????



(this message should include cygcheck.out - I hope)
