This is upside down. It's not the uid 10545 which is Domain Users,
because the 10545 is only the Cygwin translation from a Windows SID
in a Cygwin PID. You should always start with the SID from which
the PID is derived.
Actually the SID S-1-5-32-545 is the Users group on the local machine.
If you need the SID for the Domain Users group you have to retrieve
it using `mkgroup -d -g "Domain Users"', which gives you something
$ mkgroup -d -g 'Domain Users'
Anybody still looking into http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/ntsec.html
once in a while? It's outdated (Dave?) but maybe it's still useful.
