I could reproduce this and applied a patch which allows to proceed.


The problem was that the SID S-1-0 has a subauthority count of 0, which
is really weird.  S-1-0-0 would be the NULL SID, but while S-1-0 is a
valid SID (the so-called NULL SID authority), it's no valid account and
as such can't be converted to a valid account.

And the user SID isn't much better.  S-1-81 is no well known SID
authority at all.  It's handled by Cygwin without much problems,
but of course that SID can't be converted to an account either.

Do you have any explanation where these broken SIDs are coming from?
