It's a bit confusing to talk about the Cygwin version when this is
only about openssh and the csih package.  I'm really busy with other
stuff right now.  I quickly scanned the ssh-*-config scripts again
and they never write a passwd entry so, if anything, it's a problem
in the csih helper script.  Does anybody want to inspect
/usr/share/csih/ for this?
