/bin/bash: Operation not permitted

 i have a really strange problem...i install the latest cygwin release
1.7.16(0.262/5/3) with the openssh option and configure it with ssh-host-config
on a 64 bit windows 7 system...it works perfectly for one day...allowing for
putty access after reboots and log in/out...yet when i come into work the next
day i can  log in via putty but instantly get thrown out with:

/bin/bash: Operation not permitted error.

attached is a debug trace of $ssh -vvv localhost -l michael.pitoniak that fails.

i suspect it has something to do wit anti virus software of public kyes...any
suggestions on how to further debug greatly appreciated...passwd files look the
same...really stumped here...

many thanks,


michael.pitoniak@Pitoniak-wkst2 ~
$ ssh -vvv localhost -l michael.pitoniak
