The result is correct, too.  The uid/gid mapping is the mapping from
Windows SID to Cygwin uid/gid, so the uid/gid values reflect the normal
values as computed from the SIDs.

The RFC2307 uid/gid mapping has only one purpose:  Used on NFS or Samba
shares, Cygwin knows that uid 12007 is you.  So during file handling
Cygwin internally maps uid 12007 on the remote FS to the Cygwin uid
1050005 and vice versa.
