Hi Ryan-

Thanks for writing.  Those scripts should have been run, but I can't say
for sure that everything was done (I configured this a while back and
thought I had been thorough but obviously wasn't somewhere!).

We'll check that definitely, but I think the problems is due to having a
pre-installed and pre-configured Cygwin that came with the image we
inherited to use, and trying to get the proper users, permissions and ssh
configuration set.

Sincerely,

Brian Copcea
