Yea, I figured that those messages had nothing to do with my BSODs, but it
can't help to mention little details like that.  Could eventually lead to a

As for the last part of the BSOD stuff, I can appreciate the technicality
that it isn't cygwin causing the BSOD.  But the practicality is that cygwin
is the only (well, for now, anyway) software for me that can consistently
produce the BSOD, and this renders the software unusable for me.  As a
developer, I understand the situation.  As a user, I'm trying to get ideas
on what might be causing the problem.  Hoping that someone else has seen
something similar, and has suggestions.  'It's not cygwin's fault' just
doesn't help.  Anyone who's been on the wrong side of a BSOD understands :)

Thanks for the recommendation about ssh -Y...
