- Subject: new files have bogus owner
When I create a new file, it gives the file a bogus value for the owner:
~/tmp $ whoami
~/tmp $ echo asdf > asdf
~/tmp $ ls -l
-rw-rw-rw- 1 1119 None 5 Sep 19 17:36 asdf
~/tmp $ grep 1119 /etc/passwd
Shouldn't the file owner be perry? What the hell is 1119? Does anyone know
why this is happening?
The cygwin install is fresh off cywin.com and is dated July 6, 2002.
