For the records: I tried to reproduce your problem with a 2K3 Server
machine running terminal services. Logging in via remote desktop with
a non-admin acocunt, I was able to use bash and any other tool just fine.
This is with Cygwin 1.5.16. Did you upgrade? Perhaps that helps.
Other than that, I found that bash can be somewhat obdurate if the
/tmp directory is not writable for the user. I suggest to change
the permissions with
chmod 1777 /tmp
