I'm getting really strange behavior now from the Cygwin sshd  
service.  I'm going to completely redo the Cygwin installation by  
following these steps:

   1. Stop all services (I believe I only have sshd)
   2. Remove all services
   3. Remove Cygwin directory
   4. Remove all Cygwin Registry keys
   5. Reinstall Cygwin
   6. Rerun ssh-host-config

Is there anything I should pay close attention to when I go through  
this reinstallation/reconfiguration process?
