Platform: Intel i7, Windows 10 Pro
          Cygwin64

I installed cygwin X yesterday (basically the xorg-server, xlaunch,
lxterminal, openssh and mosh).  SSH doesn't work in the resulting
installation because cygwin believes the home directory is /home/sb.

I have set HOME as an environment variable, that in cygwin looks like:
 HOME=/cygdrive/d/Profiles/sb

getent reports the following:
 sb@ITEM-S63383:~$ getent passwd sb
 
sb:*:1294839:1049089:U-AD-ONE\sb,S-1-5-21-2260904419-1400770398-4175912926-246263:/home/sb:/bin/bash
 sb@ITEM-S63383:~$

The user "sb" is an AD user and the computer belongs to an active domain.

I have tried the following:
 1. Adding the following line to the /etc/nsswitch.conf file (also known
    as C:\cygwin64\etc\nsswitch.conf ):
     db_home:  windows
 2. Stopped all cygwin windows, but this didn't help
 3. Changed the config to
     db_home:  /%H
 4. Stopped all cygwin windows, but the home directory was still
    /home/sb
 5. Changed the /etc/nsswitch.conf file back to
     db_home:  windows
 5. Rebooted, but home directory was still /home/sb
 6. Checked for /etc/password and/or /etc/group, but no such file were
    present

Any ideas?

Thanks!
