Which does work for me... weird.
I have a shot in the dark you might try: set all your mounts to binmode.

I've read your log. It seems like a socket read is failing for some reason.
I don't understand that. I'm going to explain how to get the *server* debug
output, which might hold a clue:
Install another sshd service like this:
cygrunsrv -I sshd2 -d "CYGWIN sshd DEBUG MODE" -p /usr/sbin/sshd -a
"-Dddde" -e "CYGWIN=binmode tty ntsec" -t manual
Note the difference is in the arguments: added -ddde
Now end your current sshd (cygrunsrv -E sshd) to free port 22, and start
this one (cygrunsrv -S sshd2).
Try to log in from localhost. /var/log/sshd2.log will fill with loads of
stuff. Post it.
NB: With a -d option, sshd will die after serving one connection. You will
have to do cygrunsrv -S sshd2 again if you want to run another test.
>> The server /var/log/ssh.log file is empty.
That file is the stdout/stderr of sshd, redirected to a file by cygrunsrv.
You can safely add the -e option to your normal sshd, to get minimal logging
to sshd.log without causing the 'die after every connection' behaviour.
