I downloaded your binaries and was about to install Cygwin 1.1.7 and try
them, until I cycled through the versions available in the Setup list
and found that the mirrors are no longer carrying 1.1.5, only 1.1.6 and
1.1.7. That means that, if I try it and it doesn't work, I have no way
to revert to the last working version. I can't risk that.

To the Cygwin/Red Hat people: Please, could you make 1.1.5 available
until the sshd problem is resolved?
