Maybe.  I inspected the strace output and it's puzzeling.  It shows
that cygserver had no connection to your DC, but it doesn't show even
a single, successful creation of a passwd or group entry.  Usually
these are printed when stracing.  I have still not the faintest
clue what's going on.  This is frustrating.  Let's pick this up after
the weekend, please.


Thanks,
Corinna
