Re: ssh configuration that is pulling my hair out!

I suppose it's the same thought process that prompts people who install
3rd party products built on top of ancient versions of Cygwin to come
over here to ask for help with their installation.
I think a specific FAQ is indicated for this (it's a frequent enough
pattern): if they install a Cygwin distribution, or configure any
component of the distribution, using instructions or software from
anywhere other than cygwin.com or its official mirrors, they need to go
back to the source to ask their questions first.
Larry's FAQ entry sounds quite reasonable. Maybe add a clause about
Cygwin software downloaded from or distributed by non-cygwin sites.
