Actually, maybe I can.  On second thought there's a quite high
probability that my AD cyg_server account I'm using for 10 years
or longer, has not the same privileges as a cyg_server account
created via ssh-host-config script.  May it works for me because
of these extra permissions the account got during years of playing
around with it.

I guess I have to crate another, local cyg_server account via
ssh-host-config and try the same with that account.

Not having much time tomorrow, but at least on Friday I should
be able to test this.
