asterisk appended to filenames when using cygwin sftp

I know there has to be some alias hiding in my configs somewhere but I am unable to find it.
I have a fresh install with no customization.
When I sftp to a host (linux in this case) using cygwin sftp, an ls -l is giving me the -classify type option which appends * to executables, etc.  How can I turn this off?

FWIW, I can sftp from other hosts to this same host without this issue.  So the alias is not getting set on the target host.

I did search the mail archives, FAQ, and documentation before mailing, so hopefully I'm not beating a dead horse here.

Thanks for any help on this.
