RE: No userid


It looks like you had /home/Administrator as your home directory even
before you changed the user name.  This would indicate that this
information comes from somewhere else.  Do you have HOME set in your
Windows environment?

I also don't recall you attaching the output of "cygcheck -svr" to any of
your previous messages (as requested in <>).
If you didn't, please do so -- it'll help in diagnosing the problem.
