I was sure I had.  I donât run any cygrunsrv processes on that VM, so I only have to restart MinTTY to make sure Cygwin cleanly reloads.

Nevertheless, moving nsswitch.conf out of the way, restarting, and re-running id(1) continues to result in a high UID.

I donât know what was going on earlier, but the ghost has evaporated now.

The FAQ item change is checked in now, by the way.  You might want to give the new text a sanity check.
