Open SSH scp, inetd ftp


I just installed Cygwin 1.1.2 on my NT 4 Workstation SP 5.

I have still some trouble with Open SSH 2.1 and inetd.

First, ssh itself seems ok. I installed inetd as a service and sshd is 
launched by inetd. But scp doesn't work at all and displays the message 
while validating password :
"You have no controlling tty.  Cannot read passphrase."

And the ssh client works fine...
I set CYGWIN="tty ntsec"

Second problem with ftp and maybe some other services. Using the Microsoft 
NT FTP client (arf!), if I interrupt the client program at login prompt 
(using ctrl-c) then the inetd daemon service stop too !
I have to restart the service.
I saw something similar with the Berkeley ssh client.
The lastest inetutils from Corinna Vinschen didn't change anything.

I think these will be easily solved and I would like to congratulate Corinna 
for these ports.
