Building and most of testing works on Cygwin, but eventually testing
fails in sftp-uri.  The file regress/sftp-server.log contains:

  session opened for local user corinna from [UNKNOWN]
  received client version 3
  debug2: Permitting whitelisted realpath request
  debug3: request 1: realpath
  realpath "."
  debug1: request 1: sent names count 1
  Refusing non-whitelisted statvfs request
  debug3: request 2: sent status 3
  sent status Permission denied
  debug1: read eof
  session closed for local user corinna from [UNKNOWN]

Can you please explain what's going on there?
