Thanks for the pointer to the package search.
The cygcheck comes up with procps, but that's
only because I installed it.  You may be right,
perhaps the package wasn't there before.  It
was a combination of coincidences (misbehaving
xterm, firewall warning of someone wanting to
connect to sshd) that made me suspect something
was wrong.  I'm going to catch a few snores
and take another look at those event logs.
