After upgrading to the latest cygwin, ssh won't ask me
for a password anymore in the terminal window that WinCVS

of the problem by reverting cygwin to 1.3.20.
The same happens when I run WinCVS' cvs.exe in a terminal
WFM with cvs from the Cygwin distro.
I'll speculate that this is the same problem that I've seen using Emacs.
If everything is CygWin, then everything works just dandy. But,
something happens when a cygwin program runs a non-cygwin program (or
vice-versa): The launched app will disregard it's parent's "console"
and create it's own.
I've been trying to reproduce it with some relatively simple -mno-cygwin
app, but so far, I've been unable to make any progress.
