I don't understand how this conflicts with mintty.  mintty should
allocate the first tty if it is the first thing run.  ssh would allocate
some other pty (tty2) after that.  I don't see anything amiss other than
the error message above.

We'll need to see the debugging details mentioned here:

Please provide information on any changes you've made to your ssh setup
as well as the cygcheck output mentioned there.
