I will now answer my own question.
sshd wants (I could hear it talk to me) the -D option to be provided when
run as a service (SrvAny, Invoker, ...) on WinNT/Win2000. The -D option
prevents sshd from forking and detaching (which is a good thing in the *nix
world). Instead, the process stays under the control of the service wrapper
(SrvAny, Invoker, ...), so it can be stopped and started at will.
I have tested this with SrvAny. I believe it will resolve the problem I had
with Invoker as well. I will check it tomorrow.
