Connection to Cygwin sshd fails with "Operation not permitted" - bash works fine on mintty

In case you still haven't figured it out - I ran into similar issues and in
my case it turned out to be permission problems on several directories.

I followed the instructions from (section on "Cygwin
binaries permissions wrong") and after changing permissions as instructed
there I was able to log on again.
