After printing the PATH, the later versions of cygcheck attempt to execute
"id.exe" to get user information.  For some reason this fails for you.
Can you try executing "id" and "CYGWIN=nontsec id" on the command line and
posting the output?  Try also running "cygcheck -s" under strace and
seeing what is the last system call cygcheck makes before it fails.
