This looks weird. Did you copy your /etc/passwd and /etc/group files
from another machine, by any chance? If you have both files, simply
remove them. Check if you have a /etc/nsswitch.conf(*) file and
remove it as well.
Exit all Cygwin processes and start a single shell. What does
`id' print? What does `ls -l' print now?
