Pb SSH, Files ownership

I'm having some difficulties with SSH, Cygwin, under NT.
- First I tried to play with the version 1.2.27.
But it didn't work, the programs complained that _ctype_ was
missing in the cygwin1.dll. In the archive of this mailing list
Sergey mentionned that his updated version of the library fixes
the problem. So I installed it but it didn't change anything.
I've checked carefully that no other versions of the lib are
present, that _ctype_ is found with nm(1) in the lib.
Cygcheck -s shows a normal config. So I can't figure out what's
- I gave a try to version 1.2.26. Most of the commands work fine,
except ssh-agent. It fails with the message :
"Bad modes or owner for directory '/tmp/ssh-lefevre'"
This directory is correctly created but it's not owned by me but
by a user named "admin".
- I think that I created this account some months (or years) ago and that
I used it to install cygwin. I've set up a passwd and a group file.
But I'm unable to chown existing files. Actually, I'm completely
confused with ownership and groups : being me (lefevre) if I create
a new file, this file does not belong to me but to admin.
Help would be welcome ! thank you,
