I'm trying to check in the serialization system and am having some problems.

Ssh seems to have difficulty creating/updated a file of known_hosts in my
home directory. I'm using windows XP with cygwin shell. I've tried changing
environmental variables $HOME, and others but nothing seems to make a
difference. Does anyone have any suggestion. I realize that this isn't the
best place to post this but I'm kind if desperate. Thank you for your
