Yes, or at least I think so. In sec_helper.cc:sec_acl() I changed 
well_known_system_sid to well_known_world_sid.
I use a test program that makes direct Windows socket calls, so
that it is not affected by the fhandler_socket changes.
Now it works when launched from Cygwin, but not from Windows.
That's consistent with the theory.
