i installed sshd with host-config as service under SYSTEM account without
pivilege separation.
everything works fine if i use password authentication.
but if i use keyfile authentication i am able to log in but if i do an "id"
it shows only my primary group, not the other groups i'm in
(id works fine with password authentication).
one other fact is that bash (?) is unable to resolve the hostname, i only
see myuser@??host?? whith keyfile authetication and if i try hostname i only
"hostname: gethostname: Operation not permitted"
i set all permission unter / to 777 (except for the privat keys) but with no

any help would be appreciated.
