FWIW, I think I am seeing the same problem on Windows Server 2012 R2
ever since that came out.  I think this is some security feature as the
same thing happily works on non-server Windows of all versions I have
access to, possibly controlled by a group policy, although I have not
found anyone who seems to know about it.  But it does work for other
people in other environments, so there must be some setting somewhere
that prevents it.

My current work-around is to run sshd as the user that logs in (in may
case it's always the same user) so it doesn't have to switch SID.

You can install both Cygwin versions in parallel, just don't re-create
the ssh user when setting up sshd.
