There is no such program as "cygserv". I presume you mean "cygrunsrv".
Also, which of the two processes consumes 100% of the CPU? Or do they
each consume 50% (or some other numbers that add up to 100%)?

How do you end the processes? If you used "kill", did you try to simply
stop the service (via "cygrunsrv -E sshd" or "net stop sshd") instead?

Huh? Do you mean you can restart the service afterwards?

Well, you could attach to the process consuming the most CPU with strace
(for a bit) and see what that shows... It doesn't look like this is
something others can reproduce, so you'll have to do a bit of debugging on
FWIW, as a workaround, you can change the startup type of the sshd service
to "manual", and start it yourself (with "cygrunsrv -S sshd" or "net start
sshd") whenever you need it.
