sshd crashing

I have a fresh installation of cygwin on xp and win7 (both run 1.17.16-1).
I have run ssh-host-config followed by rebaseall. The CYGWIN variable
for sshd is not set.
I have tried with and without priv. separation.
It is started with cygrunsrv -S sshd
I can connect with ssh localhost. Things are ok until I do vi
/etc/profile. At this moment it crashes.

Now if I try the version without priv separation to start by hand:
/usr/sbin/sshd -D -d -e things go well and it does not crashes when in
ssh session /etc/profile is edited.
Am I missing something in config?
