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.
