After a clean reinstall of cygwin from the web and copying my old HOME
directory to the new installation, I can no longer start sshd.
Never mind. I must have previously selected the nondefault value of
"no" for "allow privilege separation?" in ssh-host-config, without
recording that fact in my installation notes.
Well, no. I found an old copy of etc/sshd_config that shows I was
indeed previously using the default value of "yes", so something about
the current installation must be different. Another user sent me a
message describing a similar problem, after a cygwin upgrade, that he
solved by a complete cygwin reinstall. I am using a completely new
installation, but I did try re-installing openssh, to no avail. Anyway,
simply disallowing privilege separation has allowed me to get ssh to
work in an apparently satisfactory manner.
