Re: openssh: uid changes unexpectedly to cyg_server

Hi All,

I have a situation where the uid changes to cyg_server unexpectedly when
changing PATH:

$ ( id; PATH=/cygdrive/c/devkit/msys/1.0.11/bin:/usr/bin:; id ) UID=1001(pleezy) GID=513(None) groepen=513(None),544(Administrators),545(Gebruikers),1000(HomeUsers) 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

The devkit directory looks normal:

$ ls -l /cygdrive/c/devkit/msys/1.0.11/bin
totaal 9100
-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
. . .

It is causing tremendous problems in file access.

Any ideas?

Yes. You've changed the tool you're using when you changed your path.
Try '( id; PATH=/cygdrive/c/devkit/msys/1.0.11/bin:/usr/bin:; /cygdrive/c/cygiwn/bin/id)'.
