You could improve on the length of your lines. You definetely *should*
improve on that.

Aaah, those "configuration docs". You know them. We all know them.

But to be serious: the only relevant "configuration doc" is
/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/openssh.README. If you used something different:
uninstall, reinstall - as you won't get any help on this list.

Do you think there is any sense in sending debug information for a
session /that works/? Why didnt't you send those for the sshd in
service mode?! FYI: sshd logs to /var/log and to the Event Viewer.
