Generally you don't get very useful information from the ssh client when troubleshooting this kind of issue for security reasons.

Try running your sshd in debug mode, i.e. /usr/sbin/sshd -d -p 1234 and then try connecting to it from another window, ssh -p 1234 localhost. If that works (I've not tried it under Cygwin) it will hopefully give you a better idea why it's terminating the connection.
