Huh?  What has the group to do with the uid?

Ntsec needs passwd entries for users and especially the SID in this

useful for ntsec.  Why are the SIDs missing?  Are you actually
working under the administrators account?  Did you rename it on

should better look like this:

When using ntsec, yes.  This should have been the case already with
earlier releases of Cygwin.  In 1.3.11 it just got stricter.
