Re: Testers needed: New passwd/group handling in Cygwin

My primary group ID in AD is 513 (Domain Users), just as shown by id, I am
not member of the Administrators group and I only have effective group
membership when running from an elevated prompt (which I'm allowed to get to
via another group membership and a group policy that's totally unrelated to
the well-known Administrators group).  I have no idea what happens either,
none of the traces even contain a check for Administrators group or a
recognizable ID.   All I know is that when the mapping for Administrators
group is not 544, then the test fails.  Anyway, I've run out of time for the
moment, I'll try to set up a clean test environment later.  This whole
business of various settings in nsswitch.conf and entries in passwd/group is
creating a combinatorial explosion that I'm not sure how to manage yet. 
Then, I'll have to sanitize the traces, which will require a script if it's
more than two or three.
