I have updated the version of login(1) to 1.4-3.
This version fixes the problem that login has been using the wrong

No kidding. Email cygwin stuff to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.
Did I mention that I'd prefer that all cygwin questions should go to
email@example.com? I can't remember...
