I expect my test user has sufficient privileges. It is
in groups None, Administrators, Power Users, and User.
I guess I'll try to learn more about the internals of w2k,
more then I ever wanted to know, starting with ReportEventA().
Unfortunately my configure of cygwin-1.5.5-1 died looking
for an errant install-sh. In case my w2k environment is
insufficient to build cygwin from scratch, could you add a
check of return code from ReportEventA()? That might shed
light on the problem.
