This file is listed under `ls -l`:
-rw------- 1 SYSTEM root 0 Aug 23 08:31 cygserver.log
% cat cygserver.log
cat: cygserver.log: Permission denied
I couldn't access this file, so I temporarily used `chown --reference`
to set the owner to myself. This file is empty, just as it first appears.
I see that in /etc/cygserver.conf I have not changed the defaults for LOGGING:
# kern.log.syslog: Determines whether logging should go to the syslog,
# Default is "yes", if stderr is no tty, "no" otherwise.
# Command line option -y, --syslog or -Y, --no-syslog.
# kern.log.stderr: Determines whether logging should go to stderr,
# Default is "yes", if stderr is a tty, "no" otherwise.
# Command line option -e, --stderr or -E, --no-stderr.
# kern.log.level: Logging level. Valid values are 1 to 7 with a bigger
# value emitting more logging output. Default level is 6.
# Command line option -l, --log-level.
# kern.log.debug: Determines whether debug output should be printed to stderr.
# Default is "no". Command line option -d, --debug
(If I change anything in this file, do I have to rerun anything?)

: cygserver is a core Cygwin service so the Cygwin list is the proper place
: to discuss it.
: What does '/var/log/cygserver.log' say?
