Check. All of that is true for me as well, except I don't have
"binmode" in my CYGWIN.

Check. Like I said, sshd works perfectly for me now, so I'm pretty
sure all the 'ntsec' and SYSTEM stuff is OK. I'm pretty sure
SYSTEM can read everything under /var/cron, because I see "RELOAD
tabs/ryans" in the event logs.

I know the feeling :) Unfortunately, some crucial step is missing, or
something has changed recently that is causing it to break.
