They ought to be - but you should also really only use version 2 - much,
much more secure.
$ ssh -V
OpenSSH_4.2p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8 05 Jul 2005
This is fine.
$ ssh -V
OpenSSH_3.7p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0.9.7b 10 Apr 2003
UPGRADE!! Both the version of openssh and of openssl need updating, badly.
There are various bugs and security holes, some of them reasonably major
that have been fixed.
Snipet of Failing debug info from cygwin ssh -v -v ...:

debug1: Entering interactive session.
debug1: channel 0: free: client-session, nchannels 1

Connection to aix closed.
Could you try and run the sshd verbose mode, w/o it detaching, and
perhaps give us more information? This seems to be more of an issue on
the server rather than the client though..
Please *attach* cygcheck output in future!
