I have a situation where the uid changes to cyg_server unexpectedly when
$ ( id; PATH=/cygdrive/c/devkit/msys/1.0.11/bin:/usr/bin:; id )
uid=500(cyg_server) gid=544(Administrators) groups=544(Administrators)
The uid 500 is in itself strange, as it does not seem to belong to cyg_server

$ ls -l /cygdrive/c/devkit/msys/1.0.11/bin
-rwxr-xr-x 1 pleezy None 105472 25 mrt 2008 a2p.exe
-rwxr-xr-x 1 pleezy None 162 26 aug 2008 awk
-rwxr-xr-x 1 pleezy None 16896 26 aug 2008 basename.exe
. . .
