If you followed installation instructions for OpenSSH from another site,
then you should direct your questions about problems with OpenSSH to that
site. is not and this list, as a result,
can't support information for it.  My best recommendation, if you'd like
someone on this list to entertain the notion of investigating your problem,
is to uninstall and reinstall OpenSSH via setup and then to configure it 
as /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/openssh-*.README suggests.  If you still see the
same problem, you'll want to visit <> first
and then follow-up with this list providing the information requested 
there.  FWIW, I just tried a quick test here and I don't see the situation
you described.  I can't say that this is significant.  Only that I can't
reproduce the problem with the information given and my Cygwin-supported
install. ;-)
