A new version of autossh, 1.4d-1, is available in the Cygwin distribution.
This is a new upstream release, with bug fixes:

* Fixes file descriptor issues when started without standard input
available (for example, in system initialization scripts)

autossh is a program to start an instance of ssh and monitor it, restarting
it as necessary should it die or stop passing traffic.  autossh monitors
connections by sending data through a loop of port forwardings, and
checking that the data returns.  autossh backs off on the rate of
connection attempts when experiencing rapid failures such as connection
refused.  It includes an NT service mode, which works well as an NT system
service under cygrunsrv.
