Re: Cygwin-1.7 and 'None' [was Nobody] group

After all these years I was sure that now everyone was aware of the

I didn't mean a bug, but a different behavior under 1.7.

I have noticed that the following files belong to Nessuno (== None):

$ find /cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/ -group Nessuno -ls
[...] /cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/cygdrive
/cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/dev/fd -> /proc/self/fd
/cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/dev/stderr -> /proc/self/fd/2
/cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/dev/stdin -> /proc/self/fd/0
/cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/dev/stdout -> /proc/self/fd/1

/cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/etc/hosts ->

/cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/etc/mtab -> /proc/mounts

/cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/etc/networks ->


/cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/etc/protocols ->

/cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/etc/services ->

/cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/lib/terminfo -> /usr/share/terminfo

Now, since them have been created by setup-1.7.exe (called from
Start/Run), I would expect that, after the changes 513 --> 544 etc. in
/etc/passwd, they belong to Administrators etc. (as the do in Cygwin-1.5
and for the other files in 1.7). Evidently, my logic, here, is wrong.

I would tempted to change them manually:

$ find /cygdrive/c/cygwin-2/ -group Nessuno | xargs chgrp -h \

Thanks, Angelo.
