Ajay, here is a better answer.

You write '<===== this is "None"', but in an earlier message you gave us your
group file with
so it isn't None.

You write '<===== Who is 5320?'
and I think it's you.

This is my explanation: you are running under a domain account and you have
executed mkpasswd -d nor mkgroup -d
You also have a local account with the same name. When you enter Cygwin from
Windows, Cygwin finds an entry under your name and does its best to use it,
among other things creating files with the gid of your local account and
the local uid to the domain sid.
However MS Word uses your domain account gid, which is missing from
Hence the ???????.
