You'd need to check that group 544 is in your user token.  Some folks
say 114 too, but if you use cygdrop -l, this group will stay in your
token, while you are _not_ having local admin rights anymore.

But calling id on a domain member machine can, under unfavorable
circumstances, take more than a minute to complete.  The AD integration
for Cygwin has developed further since I last saw this problem so it's
possible it's been solved along with some other things.  However since
I've not had the time yet to try and re-create the setup that most
consistently showed the problem I don't want to put it into any standard
startup files.
