SFTP error 128


I have a Windows 2003 SBS server.

I have set up cygwin SSHD so I can connect to it

I can SSH and SFTP to the machine successfully using
the Administrator account.

I want to set up a couple Domain Users to be able
to SFTP files up to the server.

The users are in Active Directory so I first changed
the security policy to allow users to log on locally.

I then created the password and group files using
these commands from the Cygwin shell using the
Administrator account.
  mkpasswd -l -d > /etc/passwd
  mkgroup -l -d > /etc/group

Next, I logged in as one of the users, ran the cygwin
shell and ran ssh-user-config

Now, from remote, I can ssh to the machine using the
domain user's account.

But, when I try top SFTP, I get error 128.

According to something I read on the Internet, this means
the domain user cannot execute the SFTP subsystem.

I set permissions of read and execute for Domain Users
on the entire C:\Cygwin heirarchy to no avail.

Any ideas what went wrong?
