Did you create a passwd entry?  I just set up a machine for testing
with a local cyg_server account, and I can login with local accounts
just fine.  It's the domain accounts which fail.  In my case bash simply
hangs for some reason I have yet to figure out.

If I use the domain cyg_server account, I can login with domain accounts
as well as local accounts, independent of their admin-ness.
