Interestingly, on my laptop, I did a new install (it had previously
exhibited the crash behavior).
Machine: Windows 2000 Pro running on Dell Latitude CSx.
Logging in as DOMAIN\erdelym.  User has Local Administrator rights.

Steps:
1.  Deleted "Cygnus Solutions" registry keys.
2.  Stopped and removed any Cygwin related services (SSHD & INETD).
3.  Renamed C:\Cygwin -> C:\Cygwin.old
4.  Downloaded and installed fresh, clean Cygwin from franken.de including
OpenSSH2.3.0p1-2.
5.  Deleted my local "erdelym" user from /etc/passwd.
6. Added my domain "erdelym" user to /etc/passwd including
"U-DOMAIN\erdelym" text.
7.  Ran "iu-config".
8.  Ran "ssh-config".
9.  Copied /usr/sbin/sshd.exe /usr/sbin/in.sshd.exe.
10.  Commented all services in /etc/inetd.conf out.
11.  Added "sshd    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/in.sshd
sshd -i -d -d -d" to /etc/inetd.conf
12. Changed RSAAuth to no and PasswordAuth to yes in /etc/sshd_config.
12. Ran "chown system.system /etc/ssh_host*_key".
13. Ran "/usr/sbin/inetd --install-as-service".
14. Ran "net start inetd".
15. Ran "ssh -v -v -v localhost".

Success!!!  No Dr. Watson errors.  No stack trace dumps.

So, I:
16. Ran "net stop inetd".
17. Removed "-d -d -d" from the sshd line in /etc/inetd.conf
18. Ran "net start inetd"
19. Ran ssh localhost.

Success Again!!!

20.  Ran SecureCRT and connected to localhost.

Success Again.

Here are some of the things I _didn't_ do this time:
1. I normally customize PS1 in /etc/profile which involves using the output
of hostname | tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]'.
2. I normally start locking down permissions on files (644 or 755 for most
things and making 544.544 owner of most files).

Here's the weird thing, though.  When I followed the exact same procedure on
my laptop at home, I still get the errors.
Home laptop: Windows 2000 Pro on Dell Inspiron 3800.
Logged in as local user: holly with local administrative rights.

I can't figure this out.
