Take a look at "ssh-agent".  Once you key in your 
passphrase one time, the "ssh-agent" utility will handle any further 
requests for your passphrase during that login session. 

I don't use it, but on the cygwin side, I assume that there's some 
equivalent mechanism within the SSH feature set you're using.
