When I open a cygwin window for the first time (that is, when no other cygwin window is open), uid and group are 0 (superuser/root; however username is correctly mentioned). Upon subsequent opens (without closing the first), a reasonable uid is set (1004). This is with latest cygwin, bash shell, on windows 7. What might be the problem? Thanks.
