child_info_spawn::worker: CreateWindowStation failed,in32 error 5

I'm struggling with a Cygwin / SSH connection issue, and I'm hoping someone can provide some insight. I'm fairly new to both Cygwin and SSH, so I may well be missing something obvious. I've installed Cygwin and configured SSH (using a domain cyg_server account), and I am able to connect. If I connect using the cyg_server account, everything works as expected:
$ ssh -l cyg_server MAMMDMDB01 'date'

If however I attempt another domain account, the connection goes through, but I get the above error:
$ ssh -l oinstall MAMMDMDB01 'date'
0 [main] sshd 4564 child_info_spawn::worker: CreateWindowStation failed, Win32 error 5

Both accounts have the same windows permissions:
C:\cygwin\bin>editrights.exe -l -u oinstall
C:\cygwin\bin>editrights.exe -l -u cyg_server
I added both to the /etc/passwd file using /bin/mkpasswd, both accounts have /home/ directories.
