Yes, but see below.

The message is not produced by cygwin itself by by the /etc/profile
script, which you can easily edit to remove the section of code that
checks the group name. It's just a warning, nothing bad will happen as
long as you don't try to use features (e.g. chown and various services)
that require a complete /etc/passwd. I would recommend doing that rather
than trying to go back in time.
