openssh: uid changes unexpectedly to cyg_server

Hi All,

I have a situation where the uid changes to cyg_server unexpectedly when 
changing PATH:


$ ( id; PATH=/cygdrive/c/devkit/msys/1.0.11/bin:/usr/bin:; id )
UID=1001(pleezy) GID=513(None) 
groepen=513(None),544(Administrators),545(Gebruikers),1000(HomeUsers)
uid=500(cyg_server) gid=544(Administrators) groups=544(Administrators)


The uid 500 is in itself strange, as it does not seem to belong to 
cyg_server


The devkit directory looks normal:

$ ls -l /cygdrive/c/devkit/msys/1.0.11/bin
totaal 9100
-rwxr-xr-x 1 pleezy None  105472 25 mrt  2008 a2p.exe
-rwxr-xr-x 1 pleezy None     162 26 aug  2008 awk
-rwxr-xr-x 1 pleezy None   16896 26 aug  2008 basename.exe
. . .

It is causing tremendous problems in file access.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Bartels
