On the desktop, I also get a response of "1".

But on the desktop, I was able to make a link under /home:

	dr-xr-xr-x+ 1 tbaker None   0 2010-02-24 17:53 Administrator
	lrwxrwxrwx  1 tbaker None  12 2010-02-23 18:07 TBaker -> /home/tbaker
	dr-xr-xr-x+ 1 tbaker None   0 2010-02-24 17:53 tbaker

That seems inconsistent, but I guess the changed /etc/passwd entry
on the desktop has solved the problem, so I will not worry about this.

Please let me know if I can make any further tests for you.  Has my case
been at all instructive for you developers?  Anyway, keep up the great work -
cygwin is fantastic.
