In Windows XP Professional create a new user account and create a password for it.
Then try to log in using sftp and the session will hang just after entering the password.

This happens even if before trying to connect by sftp you create the user's profile/home directory.

Instead, if you logged in windows graphically at least once, the home directory is populated with some system files and the daemon works correctly.
