FW: 1.7.5-1 : Public Key Authentication for SFTP closes abruptly after connecting

I have cygwin installed on Windows 2003 server. I have Public Key
authentication working for SSH.  Public Key Authentication SFTP connections
crash. 

SFTP and SSH both work via password authentication.

I have sshd installed. I used ssh-host-config to configure the server with
privilege separation. I used ssh-user-config to generate the keys.

The user is a Windows domain user.  I populated /etc/passwd and /etc/group
with:

mkpasswd -d ExampleDomain -u TestUser >>../etc/passwd
mkgroup -d ExampleDomain -g "Domain Users" >> /etc/group

The client debug is here. I generated these keys on another cygwin server
(same version). I copied the public keys to the host SFTP server. I have
attempted this test from a separate cygwin server, from a Linux server, from
Filezilla, and from WinSCP. All connections crash, so I assume this is a
host side problem.

I do not know how to enable debug on the server side. 
The test user is currently a local administrator 

Cygcheck.out attached.
