Try to find out what goes wrong.  Can Cygwin get the DC for the domain?
An strace of an sshd session will help, look for an error message in a
function called get_logon_server.  Does the DC refuse information?
You should find something in the DC's event logs. 

Btw., a workaround for such problems is to add the user to the
appropriate groups in /etc/group.  This will give you a nice user
token even if the DC is not cooperative.
