Would be cool if you could test that.  Assuming you're not accessing
NFS shares, it may be the Samba stuff.  The culprits are probably
the calls to convert_samba_sd in check_file_access and the cygpsid::get_id
method which explicitely checks for S-1-22 SIDs and tries to convert them
to a Windows account per RFC 2307.

If that's the problem, it might be prudent to switch this off by default
and to enable that only via a setting in /etc/nsswitch.conf.

Erm... if you can't add *this* to the script, you wouldn't be able to
add the kill -USR1 call to the script either, isn't it?
