Did you try the latest Cygwin 1.5.25-7?  There's a small change when
creating the user token which might help.  I can't promise it does,
because it was originally to workaround a problem in 2003 Server, not
in XP.

Other than that, the Cygwin ML archive has a pointer to a Microsoft
Hotfix to workaround this problem in Visual Studio:
