Running OpenSSH from an Emacs shell buffer doesn't work when you are

Yes, it works both ways. Cygwin programs such as ssh, which expect stdin and stdout to be implemented by Cygwin's tty emulation will not work as subprocesses of native Windows apps. And native Windows programs can in some cases have problems working under a Cygwin "tty" (java running under Cygwin being a famous example). There are also problems caused by Cygwin's DLLs not being compatible with native DLLs of the same name and causing crashes if Cygwin is in your PATH. This problem often affects native ports of open source programs, giving people the false impression that the native ports are inferior to the Cygwin package.
