I don't think so. That command works from me from a linux box.
Futhermore, this ssh connection is documented here:
It is used to test the login to the github.com account.
Finally, this command used to work on cygwin a couple of weeks ago. I
OpenSSH readme's and ChangeLog and nothing jumped out.
I tried both the current 5.8p1-1 and previous ssh (5.6p1-2). Same problem.
