Re: problem with a ssh server under cygwin

You should try to figure out why your $PATH is corrupted.  It must
contain the Windows specifc paths, otherwise loading system DLLs 
fail as is the case on your system.  Just FYI, I'm using sshd myself
on a daily basis and I don't have this problem (and you can bet which
version I'm using).

sshd contains a Cygwin specifc code snippet which keeps the content
of the environment given to it while on other systems the environment
is reduced to a minimum before calling the child process.

Which is what I'm using all the time... and still, it works for me.
