Why should it? 112085 is the user id. It should only appear in /etc/passwd.
On the other hand the gid 10513 should appear in /etc/group.
Isn't it in group.domain? Why don't you append group.domain to group?

That's because ssh doesn't find your uid in /etc/passwd.
Perhaps because you have changed the uid in passwd after
having started cygwin.
