You can set this as a windows system environment variable by right 
clicking on my computer -> properties -> environment (or advanced if you 
on win2k?). This needs to be set at a system level so the system manager 
sees that it is set and passes it on to sshd. You will need to reboot 
the machine once you set this for it to take effect- simply stopping and 
starting sshd will not pickup the change.

The best way to search the mailing archives is with google 
( Type your search term in the box followed by 
"". This will use the google search engine to search the 
cygwin site. This is a very useful tool for many internet sites.
