It doesn't work that way. When calling
it changes the impersonated access token if priv_gid is in the group
list of the new users token. That way, the final setuid again creates
a new passwordless token.
But keeping the gid completly untouched should work. Changing the euid
to the new user uses the token given by cygwin_set_impersonation_token.
Switching back to priv_uid again left the gid untouched so it just
reverts to self.

initgroups() is totally useless in login() since it's whole purpose is
to use a token created by the system. initgroups will have no effect
on that token.
