I remember back in the XP days there was a tool named "UPHClean" (
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/837115/). According to that
"UPHClean monitors the computer while you log off, and then UPHClean
unloads and reconciles user profiles..."
Also in that article:
"Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 include the functionality of the
automatic detection and fix tool (UPHClean)..."
So if I had to guess:
* The core Windows "User Profile Service" (profsvc) automatically handles
* The Microsoft port of OpenSSH relies on this functionality instead of
calling UnloadUserProfile on its own
I could be wrong, of course (as I said, this is just guesswork on my part).
