Can't login to Cygwin SSH server with domain account

- Authentication-results: sourceware.org; auth=none
I am running Cygwin SSH server under local cyg_server account, and I
can't login with domain accounts (using password).
Connection and authentication succeed, from what I can tell, but then
the server immediately closes connection:
$ ssh domaintest@localhost
Last login: Fri May 13 13:14:44 2016 from ::1
Connection to localhost closed.
The only clue in server log is "Received SIGCHLD" message:
debug1: Allocating pty.
debug1: session_pty_req: session 0 alloc /dev/pty3
debug1: server_input_channel_req: channel 0 request shell reply 1
debug1: session_by_channel: session 0 channel 0
debug1: session_input_channel_req: session 0 req shell
Starting session: shell on pty3 for domaintest from ::1 port
49287 id 0
debug1: Setting controlling tty using TIOCSCTTY.
debug1: Received SIGCHLD.
debug1: session_by_pid: pid 3464
At the same time, logins into local accounts do work.
When I switch the service to run under domain account instead, the
opposite happens - I can log in with domain accounts, but cannot login
using local accounts anymore. Only in that case, the error is different:
/bin/bash: Operation not permitted
In all cases, it looks like authentication succeeds, but then some
privileges don't match up.
https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2010-01/msg00334.html talks about similar
problem in relation to passwordless logons, and says that in order to
ssh into domain accounts, I also have to run the service under domain
account. That makes sense, however I am using password logons, which
theoretically should work in all cases, as far as I understand.
Ideally, I'm looking for SSH setup where both local and domain users can
login. Is that even possible ?
