Hi folks,

The latest snapshot, 2014-04-10, is a snapshot from CVS HEAD again.
It contains the latest crazy ideas in terms of the user and group
account creation without requiring the /etc/passwd and /etc/group

I installed the complete snapshot and moved /etc/passwd and
/etc/group out of the way.  Now all users have gid == uid:

$ mkpasswd.exe
+SYSTEM:*:18:18:U-NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM,S-1-5-18:/home/SYSTEM:/bin/bash

$ mkgroup.exe

Shouldn't ordinary users (like kbrown) have gid == 197121?  All
files I created as kbrown prior to the test show group "None", and
all files I created after the test show group "kbrown".

Is this a bug, or is there something weird about my system that's
making this happen?  cygcheck output is attached.

Definitely a bug.  I "optimized" the code a couple of weeks ago and
while I was at it I "optimized" away the code evaluating local user's
primary gid.  Duh.  I'm just building a new snapshot.

Works fine now.  Thanks.
