Hi Russell,

This is as bad as I feared.  Apart from the username and the Windows
home dir, there are no other information which could be fetched by
the usual means.  Quite apart from the fact that there are no means to
*store* this information somewhere, other than creating an explicit
/etc/passwd and matching /etc/group entry.

But, anyway, I prepared some code for the Cygwin DLL to handle these
accounts even if no /etc/passwd and /etc/group entries are present.  It
still needs some work, though, and for that I'd ask you to perform a
last test.

Good to know, thank you.  Give me a bit and I'll come up with a Cygwin
DLL for testing.
FTR, this has been kinked out off-list.  The resulting patch is in git master now.
Sounds great. Would it be an option to release this fix in a 2.5.3 version
to have a final XP release for all users?
I'm not planning to release a 2.5.3.
I didn't think so. I meant to kindly attempt to nag you to modify the plan and add such a release so that cygwin or standalone packages based on cygwin would work for Azure users that happen to be still running XP.
