A cygwinized Emacs ought to be necessary only when using Cygwin's
openssh. Many people use PuTTY instead, and they seem to be happy with.

In your case, it looks to me like Tramp didn't reach ssh yet, but was
fighting with the initial shell. There was no prompt visible at
all. Would it be an option for you to take Windows' cmd.exe (what is
the default under Windows XP)? Or are you starting Emacs from a bash

Best regards, Michael.
