I see nothing in /var/log/sshd.log. Windows event log shows following

Error      6/20/2018 3:45:19 PM   Service Control Manager
7009      None
A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the sshd
service to connect.

Error      6/20/2018 3:45:19 PM   Service Control Manager
7000      None
The sshd service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely

Another odd behavior that I observe is that after a reboot, starting a
Cygwin64 terminal (first time) takes a long time. Launching subsequent
mintty terminals is quick as it should be. Could it be that sshd startup
upon reboot is hitting the same delay as the 1st mintty?

Will try removing %SystemRoot%\System32\OpenSSH from the PATH to see if it
improves things.
