This looks weird.  Did you copy your /etc/passwd and /etc/group files
from another machine, by any chance?  If you have both files, simply
remove them.  Check if you have a /etc/nsswitch.conf(*) file and
remove it as well.

Exit all Cygwin processes and start a single shell.  What does
`id' print?  What does `ls -l' print now?


(*) In the long run, you might want to read

Startxwin worked after doing "chown granp:granp /tmp".

/etc/passwd and /etc/group files don't exist.

The file

was default dated from January. Moved it.

The output from `id and `ls -l is in the attached file.
