> Do you login with your Microsoft account?

I am logged into my workstation using the id "DOW\U074036".  Of course the services I mentioned to not run under my ID, but instead under "SYSTEM" (except sshd, which uses privsep)

> Is 1125370 your primary group id?  Can you please paste the output of `id'?

No, it is not my primary group ID...instead it is my uid (see below).  Here are the first few lines of my "id" output (the entire output is huge, as we make excessive use of AD groups here):

I've not tried either of these ... and I'm not sure if it happens at every reboot now or not (I rarely reboot).  I'll see if I can reproduce it.

Will do if I can get it to reproduce.  Will try later today, I have "day job" stuff to do at the moment.
