Interesting. I had CYGWIN set to "binmode tty ntsec" according to some instructions I found by googling. Here are the relevant results:

  bash-3.2$ CYGWIN=ntsec /bin/ls -ld ~/.ssh
  drwxr-xr-x 1 av16209 Domain Users 0 Feb  6 09:28 //solid/av16209/.ssh
  bash-3.2$ CYGWIN=smbntsec /bin/ls -ld ~/.ssh
  drwx------+ 1 av16209 Domain Users 0 Feb  6 09:28 //solid/av16209/.ssh

So it appears that CYGWIN=smbntsec is what I want. How can I reconfigure the sshd service to use that setting?

If you want this enabled indelibly just for the sshd service and you don't want to go skulking around in the registry, you can re-run ssh-host-config and specify 'smbntsec' as one of the settings when it asks you what you want for the service. This is a good thing to do because it allows you to be specific about the settings each service gets. Otherwise, if you want the setting globally, just set it in the CYGWIN environment variable and restart all Cygwin services.
