I tested this myself and from what I can tell, Microsoft didn't
implement S4U for local accounts on WOW64 on older OSes.  If I
start a 32 bit sshd from an Windows 7 64 bit WOW64 environment,
then domain accounts work fine using kerberos S4U, but for local
accounts with MsV1_0 S4U the underlying Windows function returns

Note that this works fine in Windows 7 64 bit with 64 bit Cygwin.  It
seems only older WOW64 environments (maybe even only in W7) didn't
implement this.

Two workarounds for now:

- Start sshd as 64 bit Cygwin process.
- Utilize https://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/ntsec.html#ntsec-nopasswd3
