For the records:  I tried to reproduce your problem with a 2K3 Server
machine running terminal services.  Logging in via remote desktop with
a non-admin acocunt, I was able to use bash and any other tool just fine.

This is with Cygwin 1.5.16.  Did you upgrade?  Perhaps that helps.
Other than that, I found that bash can be somewhat obdurate if the
/tmp directory is not writable for the user.  I suggest to change
the permissions with

 chmod 1777 /tmp
