Sorry but I can't reproduce that behaviour. I'm using sshd
as stand-alone service which runs with my own user account.

Are you trying to use password auth or RSA auth? I'm just
asking since RSA is not able to change the user context.

That behaviour seems to be related to inetd's state as a
windows service. I'm not sure but it's the only difference
which may result in that.
