Yes they do, as long as you do it as root.
Meanwhile, hmm can you kill the process from the TaskManager as
Administrator?? I know there are problems killing some
processes/services as administrator..
Or is it simply the 'su' problem between Cygwin and NT? You can't get
101% Administrator rights from Cygwin.
