Sorry, I did not get that answer emailed to me (some confusion during 
the subscription).

I am not clear with answer given by Corinna.

The idea behind RFC2307, imho is to have a consistent UID/GID between 
systems which have joined a domain. This is what we achieved in our 
domain, where a user login into whatever Linux box, gets the same 
uid/gid. One would expect the same behaviour in cygwin (on a joined 
machine), wouldn't he ?
