No, the order of running the config scripts doesn't matter.  cyglsa
can be used with sshd but that's not the only service that would
benefit.  And sshd can certainly be run without cyglsa, as you know.

So does the user running sshd have permission to seteuid?  A properly
configured 'cyg-server' user, as prepared by ssh-host-config, will have
the required permissions for local users.  For domain users, you need
to tweak 'cyg-server' so that it is a domain administrator at least.
