hrmmm. except on Unix the root user can kill anything, this is a good point.
And, I am able to kill other user's pids, as long as I am root, haven't tested
domain admin, but local root (Administrator) can nuke other pids.
I have my CYGWIN var setup with "binmode ntsec tty"
Can you respond with the output of a cygcheck -s?
