I am still having problems getting sftp-server to work right.  I am running 
NT4.0 with sp6a. And I just performed (5 minutes ago) an Internet install 
of the latest cygwin.dll, bash, and openssh.  I have ssh.com's client 
version  2.3.

When ever I try to use /home/jordan in my passwd file sftp dies.  If I try 
and use / it works, but I can not see any of the files/directories.  If I 
then try to change directory to /home/jordan it dies.  In fact if I try to 
change directories to anything it dies.  When using / as my home directory 
I can upload files and make directories (even though I can not see them in 
the sftp client window), they are there in the file system.

Passwd file:

Port                    22
ListenAddress           X.X.X.X
Protocol                2
HostDSAKey              /etc/sshd_host_dsa_key

AllowUsers              jordan

PasswordAuthentication  yes
PermitEmptyPasswords    no

KeepAlive               no
PrintMotd               no
CheckMail               no

IgnoreRhosts            yes
IgnoreUserKnownHosts    yes
RhostsAuthentication    no
RhostsRSAAuthentication no

Subsystem               sftp    /usr/sbin/sftp-server

Error code from sshd d when I try to use /home/jordan in passwd file.
