Do you have "ntsec" as part of your CYGWIN environment variable? If so,
do an 'ls -l /bin/bash' and make sure it's world-executable. Do an 'ls
-ld /bin' and make sure it is world executable (and, preferably,
readable). Also make sure all the relevant mounts are visible from ssh
(i.e. are type "system", rather than "user").
