On modified cygwin 1.7.9-1, the socket does not disappear 
(until shortly, 5 seconds?, after I type exit.) No problem with strace.

Might this help ? 
   -d          Debug mode. 
   "ssh-agent -d" reacts to 
               SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/tmp/ssh-aGrJxZN880/agent.880 ssh u@host
    typed to other window.
