openssh failed to start

Mon Oct 8 13:20:00 GMT 2012

My sshd failed to start after "ssh-host-config" setup.
/var/log/sshd.log is zero sized.

My answers to ssh-host-config are:

*** Query: Should privilege separation be used? (yes/no) yes

*** Query: Do you want to install sshd as a service?
*** Query: (Say "no" if it is already installed as a service) (yes/no) yes
*** Query: Enter the value of CYGWIN for the daemon: []

*** Query: Do you want to use a different name? (yes/no) no
*** Query: Please enter the password for user 'cyg_server':
*** Query: Reenter:

The versions are:
cygwin 1.7.16-1
openssh 6.1p1-1
