Not really.  For privacy reasons I'm not using Windows accounts, so it
would be really nice if somebody could track this down.

The group permission problem is easy (and I'm wondering if it really was
such a bright idea to let user SID == group SID slip through in Cygwin,
rather tnan  sticking to the former idea to change the group SID to
"Users" in this case).  csih needs a patch to not check for the group
x bit if user SID == group SID.

However, I have not the faintest idea why the cyg_server stuff doesn't
work.  Anybody willing to track this down in the csih helper script?
