Cygwin CVS from 2003/09/17 at approximately 9:30 PM ET.

A domain user:

    uid=19695(jt) gid=10513(Domain Users) groups=544(Administrators),545(Users),10513(Domain Users)

Or, did I misunderstand the question?

No, just run proftpd from the shell under LocalSystem (or as a service)
and then login from a ftp client.  You should see something like the

    TISHLERJASON ([]) - FTP session opened.
    TISHLERJASON ([]) - USER jt: Login successful.
    c:\home\jt\src\proftpd-1.2.9rc1-3\proftpd.exe: *** CreateFileMapping, Win32 error 5.  Terminating.
