The version of Cygwin that I installed on the Windows Server 2012 is the
1.7.17(0.262/5/3). So, I checked on my Windows Server 2008 R2 and the
version of the OpenSHH package is 5.2 p1-4, that explained the differences
that I encountered. So, I will try to install the new version of Cygwin
with the package OpenSSH 5.2 p1-4. 
Thanks for your quick answer,
