No way -- really? I'll have to try it.
That behavior seems pretty surprising to me; why should the type of
authentication end you up with any more or less priveleges? And for that
matter, why would *password* auth be treated as "more secure" than

hm. I suppose I could do that though it "feels" wrong since there are,
in face, multiple user accounts on this machine.
Sigh -- sometimes the line between Cygwin and Windows still confuses me.
Especially when there's no "su" that I know of.
