To me this indicates problems with user authentication.
That is the contents of "/etc/group" and|or "/etc/passwd" files
or something else that is related to those.
To be able to tell - more information is needed. (Please do read
www.cygwin.com/problems.html for instructions)
i.e. _attach_ the output of "cygcheck -svr" to an email and send it here.
