The new version of ssh is not likely my "/var/empty", which it
var/empty must be owned by root and not group or world-writable.
It doesn't seems to like this:
llg -a /var/empty
drwx------+ 1 root Administrators 0 Oct 11 2014 ./
llg -an /var/empty
drwx------+ 1 0 544 0 Oct 11 2014 ./
1) there is no root account on windows.
2) My Administrator account is named 'root', as it is the closest thing
to 'root' on a windows machine. But it doesn't like that. Originally
was UID 500.
3) Tried changing root to UID 0, but that didn't work either. :-(
How am I supposed to make ssh happy?
