Cygwin 1.7.0-48, Vista Business SP1 and Openssh

Hi All...
I just did a clean install of 1.7.0-48 on a Vista box today with the latest setup-1.7.
The process went smoothly :-)
But I noticed one strange thing.
If I ssh into the box as myself (administrator account), all is well.
If I ssh into the box as another account (non-administrator), the mount table only has / and /cygdrive. What I mean by this is, if I type mount, I do not get /usr/bin and /usr/lib listed.
Now if I log in interactively to the box as the other user, and launch a Cygwin bash shell, the problem goes away on subsequent ssh's to the box by that user.
If I then stop all Cygwin processes and then restart the ssd service, the problem reappears.
Making the other account an administrator appeared to make no difference.
