Maybe you're not using the latest Cygwin version.  There were some issues
with previous releases which you can find in the ML archives.  Another
chance is that you changed /etc/group so that Cygwin thinks it has to
add groups to your user token after password authentication took place.

Thanks for replying, Corinna. I installed cygwin just a week or two ago. To my knowledge I haven't touched /etc/group (after mkgroup). The relevent parts of /etc/passwd and /etc/group follow. When the Administrator account ssh's in, it becomes Admistrator. When myoder ssh's in, I'm sshd_server.

Anyway, I guess the answer to my greater question about the Microsoft
compiler is "no".  Thanks for your help.
