'kill' cannot see other process but its own PID ?

I just discovered that 'kill' is not able to test (-0) for processes
which have been started from the cygwin environment, but
running as another user, in this case as a service (UID = 0).
Is this a problem stemming from the cygwin environment
or is it due to Windows itself ?
As a workaround, it seems only parsing the output from
'ps -Wl' could give me the desired functionality, which
is testing if a certain process, of which the PID is known,
is still running or not.
Does anyone have maybe other ideas I might have
