Vista/Cygwin - problems running ssh-host-config

I was unable to configure my Vista host sshd with the following error:

*** Warning: The permissions on the directory /var are not correct.
*** Warning: They must match the regexp d..x..x..[xt]
*** ERROR: Problem with /var directory. Exiting.

The fix is to do the following:

17. Within the shell, execute "chmod o+x /var"
18. Within the shell, execute "ssh-host-config".
