Conflict if same username local and in domain

I started Cygwin Terminal to find out, I landed in the other users
home folder and have no write access.

What happened was:
 - log into Windows as domain user DOM\JOE
 - start cygwin shell, land in /home/joe
 - log into Windows as local user JOE
 - start cygwin shell, land in /home/joe , but with no write access,
as it belongs to other user according to Windows

Is this a known issue? Should cygwin use a different username?
