Problem with ssh and public key authentication

While doing a proof of concept with our product (LSF, a batch management system), we found the following problem, on a system with Openssh installed:
- we open an ssh session with public key authentication (no password entry)
- we try to submit a job and the submission fails because the submission command is unable to determine the submission account (actually it thinks the submission account is NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM, the local system account)
I found the following mail which exactly matches our problem (after changing the user, the Win32 API still returns the original user)

, but it's quite old..
I would like to know if this problem is still present in the current version of Cygwin, running on a Windows 2000 system, and if there is any work-around.
Thanks in advance for your help,
