Hmm, that's weird.  I'm using the latest Cygwin from CVS, and I cannot
reproduce this.  I tried to login from a remote machine with pubkey and
password authentication using an admin account as well as a normal user
account.  Works fine for me in all these cases.

I can't quite believe it, but maybe that's OS related.  I'm running my
tests on W7 in the first place.  What OS are you using?
