Urgh.  I screwed up again.  The embarrassing fact is that I know about
this problem for weeks (or is it months already?)

I'll upload a new OpenSSH package to the 1.7 release area which
fixes that.  If you want to do that at home, open ssh-host-config
with an editor and replace

  mount -t -f "${_win_etcdir}" "${_my_etcdir}"


  mount -o text -f "${_win_etcdir}" "${_my_etcdir}"

Thanks for the report,
