As I see you're requesting cygcheck -s -v -r output for other
problems, I'm attaching it here as well if it helps with my ssh /
screen reattach problem.
btw, when cygcheck completed, it also reported:
'id' program not found
'id' program not found
but id is working fine:
$ id
uid=1000(Damjan) gid=513(None) groups=513(None),544(Administrators),545(Users)
$ type id
id is hashed (/usr/bin/id)
