Whatever.  I've installed all the binaries from that build and things work
normally now.

Not the token privileges, I don't think so.  But I'm not sure how to check.

Here's the salient parts from the strace (attaching to the sshd running as a
service in sandbox mode, running with no privilege separation produces a
slightly different trace, but the events leading up to the error are the same):

 262 1161585 [main] sshd 2044 getpid: 2044 = getpid()
10593 1172178 [main] sshd 2044 get_logon_server: DC: server: \\SC301

errno 13
   37 1186993 [main] sshd 2044 initgroups32: 0 = initgroups(gratz, 1049089)

It then proceeds to log on via the token and mounts the entries from my
personal fstab (that should fail if it was running as a different user for
some of the entries).  After checking for /etc/nologin this happens:

   35 5023308 [main] sshd 2248 setegid32: new egid: 1049089 current: 197121
   41 5023349 [main] sshd 2248 setegid32: NtSetInformationToken (hProcToken,
TokenPrimaryGroup), 0xC000005B

--- Process 2248, exception 00000005 at 75511D4D

The process apparently gets killed while in the NetUserGetGroups call (much
as you suspected).  I'm not sure this tells us anything new, though. :-(
