Problems with ssh-host-config and /var/run directory


I switched from 32bit to 64 bis a week ago, moved "cygwin" to "cygwin32" and
reinstalled from scratch into a new "cygwin" directory.


    Windows 7 Ultimate Ver 6.1 Build 7601 Service Pack 1

    Cygwin DLL version info:
        DLL version: 2.8.0
        DLL epoch: 19
        DLL old termios: 5
        DLL malloc env: 28
        Cygwin conv: 181
        API major: 0
        API minor: 309
        Shared data: 5
        DLL identifier: cygwin1
        Mount registry: 3
        Cygwin registry name: Cygwin
        Installations name: Installations
        Cygdrive default prefix:
        Build date:
        Shared id: cygwin1S5

when trying to setup sshd using ssh-host-config, I get this message when
using StrictModes (which I want to and did before on cygwin32 on this system):

I tried a lot, but cannot find any solution.
Any hints?
