We have actually found a publicly available repository and a simple
scenario which reliably reproduces this problem:

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like anyone has the time to dig deep into
this yet.  As you'll see in that thread, you can use Putty's plink
instead of ssh to handle the remote connections while you wait for a
fix.  At least you'll be able to take advantage of all the other Cygwin
improvements in the meantime.
