This should be set to "cygwin" if you're running from 'cygwin.bat'.

That's certainly an important part of your environment and I do believe
that you've hit this one right on the nose!  You have an alternate
installation of OpenSSH that's getting in your way.  Uninstall it and
try again.  I think you'll have better luck.  If not, you may find it's
easiest/quickest to just wipe your Cygwin installation and reinstall.
If that's too drastic for you, you'll want to go through
'ssh-host-config' manually to make sure that everything is properly
