I've just updated the version of OpenSSH to 3.9p1-2.

This is a Cygwin specific bugfix release.

- /usr/bin/ssh-host-config has a fix for the problem that adding
  the sshd_server account to the Administrators group fails on 2K3.

- The login problem which manifests it self in the syslog entry
  "permanently_set_uid: was able to restore old [e]gid" should be
  solved, too.


If you're still using Cygwin 1.5.10 or earlier, you *must* add the -r
option when starting the sshd daemon, if you want to use privilege
separation.  Either that, or disable privilege separation in
/etc/sshd_config by setting

  UsePrivilegeSeparation no

This does not happen when running under Cygwin 1.5.11 or later.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
