Could not chdir to home directory /home/******: No such file or directory

Hello all,
We have may Windows Server running OpenSSH as service without any problems.
Only on two machines we do have the problem shown in the Putty-log.

I allready found this thread in the Internet:
which seem to point to the same problem we have.

If I do the suggestion from Michael Johnson, the connect comes and Putty
shows a $ as prombt. No further commands work.
Trying to connect via WINSCP with these settings results in a message that
the LS-Command does not work.

Has anybody any further suggestions?
By the way: in the passwd I have changed the userhome to /cygdrive/c.
nevertheless the log shows /home/[username] for chdir!?

Thanks in advance
