telnet to host running inetd, login always with SYSTEM account

Hi Guys, 

If I need to send more
information, please let me know and I'll do it.

cygcheck.out is below.
uname -a is
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 DUFAY 1.3.12(0.54/3/2) 2002-07-06 02:16 i686 unknown

win2000, p-3, 256 MB memory.
using bash.
inetd, sshd installed as services.

I have done mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd
and mkgroup -l > /etc/group

When trying to login using telnet or ftp to my localhost, 
No matter what is the login name, It always login as SYSTEM.
I cannot understand what went wrong, that is because it used to work, 
but one of the cygwin upgrading probably mess it up.
Looking at /etc/passwd and /etc/group , I can see that everything is OK.

Why the login is always on SYSTEM account even when trying to login
with different username ?

Is it configurable someplace ?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks a lot.
Keep the good job,
