Both login and sshd used to work quite well on this machine -
for several weeks and after repeated reboots. Really, honest.
Since I upgraded a few packages in Cygwin via the Cygwin installer
they no longer work. Reverting the packages did not help.
Even erasing/reinstalling Cygwin did not help.
Yes, I know Cygwin login is largely useless, but surely Login.exe
must function in some regard or it would not have been included
in the Cygwin distribution.
Of course it is a configuration issue.
Probably, as you suggest, something very simple. But I am out of ideas
that's why I am asking here. I have reviewed all previous discussions,
all Cygwin documentation as well as searched via Google to no avail.
I guess I will step through the login and crypto code with gdb.
Sorry for all the trouble.
