Cygwin cygintl-2.dll issue with 'ls' command in Win 7

After installing Cygwin, there was a warning on the Win 7 command prompt that says 'cygintl-2.dll' file is missing. It turned out to be a conflict between Cygwin and OpenSSH program, which I had installed prior to Cygwin. 'ls.exe' was part of both Cygwin's /bin and OpenSSH's /bin directories and it looked like the 'ls' command was running off OpenSSH's path. I just uninstalled OpenSSH. Then it started working again.

Alternatively, I could simply remove OpenSSH from the Window's PATH. That might have resolved the issue too but didn't try.

If you have found another solution, free free to share.
