First and foremost, you should have attached the output of "cygcheck -svr"
from a non-working machine as an uncompressed non-inline text attachment
(as per <http://cygwin.com/problems.html>).
Without that information, all I can do is venture a guess, which is that
you most likely log in as a domain user, and mkpasswd doesn't pick up the
correct groups. Try "mkpasswd -d -u YourUser YourDomain >> /etc/passwd"
and "mkgroup -d YourDomain >> /etc/group".
