I have updated the version of login(1) to 1.9-5.
This version solves a potential security problem. On the other hand,
this requires to have a well maintained /etc/passwd and /etc/group file.
If the login now fails, check that the group in your passwd entry
matches a group in /etc/group and check that the group really exists.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
If you have general questions or comments, please send them to the
Cygwin mailing list at: "cygwin at cygwin dot com". I would appreciate
it if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
