If you get them to generate ssh-keys, and put the public key in
~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the server, then they won't need passwords.
You will either:
1)Have to get ssh-agent working on windows (I haven't managed, but
Putty's pageant does work, but that's not what you want for cvs)
2)Create keys without passphrases.
Just check the perms on ~/.ssh, ssh is quite sticky (for good reason).
Must be 700 on ~/.ssh, and 600 on ~/.ssh/* except for ~/.ssh/*public*
Since we have Z: mapped as the home directory on our samba server, we
set the HOME env variable on windows to Z:, which ensures that cygwin
ssh uses the same .ssh as linux :-).

Has anyone thought of writing a pam_ntlm (or something) module that
would do the same? Or should pam_winbind handle this?
