Darn.  Did you set this up with a "Microsoft Account"?  If so, then
something's not working as expected.  There's code in Cygwin which
converts your primary group in your user token to the group "Users" in
this scenario to avoid this very problem.

But somehow this code doesn't kick in in your case and it would be
obviously interesdting to know why.
