Is it possible to configure the conditions for the imports for an arcpy script?

This is a truncated logging output from a verbose run of an arcpy script with only an import of arcpy:

It seems that the python interpreter is invoked a second time within the script prior to the "import arcpy". This gives unexpected consequences when running an arcpy script on a Windows Server via remotely executed command through SSH link, OpenSSH Server installed in Cygwin environment. The script terminates immediately at the "import arcpy" call. Running the arcpy script while being logged in the arcpy script continues the execution and produces the expected output.

The arcpy script also works as expected when run locally on the server in a command prompt.


Is there a way to configure the python environment so that the arcpy import is completed and not aborted?
