All the documentation for ssh says that it uses $HOME/.ssh by default
to find then user's keys etc. For me, HOME is
/cygdrive/d/home/luke, but ssh *always* complains about being unable to
create the directory /home/luke.
This strongly suggests that ssh is *not* doing a getenv(HOME).
Anyway, it turns out that there was no /home directory under
/cygdrive/d, so I created one, then did a:
mount d:\\home /home
and things behaved more sensibly.
I don't understand why there was no /home. Probably related to the
fact that there have been several older Cygwin installs.
