Using the passwd -R bit did not change the behavior.  I still am unable to 
access the network share when logging in via SSH, but it works just fine 
when starting cygwin locally.

I will note that the network share (CIFS) uses a different 
username/password than my local user/password on the windows box (That, 
unfortunately, is not under my control).

However, I set up the share using net use \\IP\share /savecreds, and that 
does mount the drive to Windows at least every time without prompting, and 
Cygwin locally is able to use it.  It is only an issue with the SSH
