After a clean reinstall of cygwin from the web and copying my old HOME 
directory to the new installation, I can no longer start sshd.  Messages 
are as follows:

$ net start sshd
The CYGWIN sshd service is starting.
The CYGWIN sshd service could not be started.

The service did not report an error.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3534.

$ cygrunsrv -S sshd
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus:  Win32 error 1062:
The service has not been started.

sbin/sshd.exe is in fact  present and  not already running.
