I came across it but had eliminated it because it does not seem to be 
open-source. That might have been too harsh since it's free (as in 
beer). So I gave it a try.

The problem is that when I start an application such as notepad, it does 
not appear on the VM's desktop. I suspect freeSSHd creates a separate 
window station and that's going to break Wine's tests. I looked for an 
option to change this behavior but found none.

(the KpyM SSH Server has the same issue)
