user "sophos" run connection from  Unix server to  remote cygwin server 
on XP worskstation.
sophos user  is real and usable user on  UNIX and XP cygwin workstation.
sophos directory  is samba  share windows/Unix directory on Unix server.

when is connected on remote  cygwin ; it appear  as  "nobody" user ???
Test command : /usr/local/bin/ssh -v -i /usr/local/SOPHOS/.ssh/id_dsa 
sweep@tania "cd /sophos; echo abcdef > toto; ls -ail toto"
using su in or out command can't change nothing  result  !

result :
file toto is created  as nobody  uid and gid ???
206441 -rwxr--r--    1 nobody   nobody            7 déc  3 12:08 toto

Why ; I d'ont understand  this ?

  thanks in advance for you help
