I've switched privilege separateion off completely, but no dice.  The Access
Denied comes from trying to switch from primary group "MACHINE+None" to
"Domain Users".  That is expected to happen, what I still don't get is why
the parent process winds up with the exception instead of the originating
process as on 64bit.

When the process comes to this point it has already verified the user via AD.

Is it possible to run sshd in gdb?
