Problem with ssh-keygen.exe.

Hi all.

I just installed the net release on a NT box and
I noticed a strange problem with the ssh-keygen
application. I am running as user mdejong
with a home dir of /home/mdejong, but ssh-keygen
thinks differently.

$ ssh-keygen.exe
Generating RSA keys:  Key generation complete.
Enter file in which to save the key (/bin/sh/.ssh/identity):

from bash:

$ echo $HOME

$ echo $USER

If I create the /home/mdejong/.ssh dir before hand
and then type "/home/mdejong/.ssh/identity" in
at the prompt, it works. Seems like kind of 
a strange bug, so I wondered if anyone else
had run into it.

Could it be grabbing $SHELL instead of $HOME
for some strange reason?

$ env | grep sh
