Sounds like he just doesn't want/need ntsec for his uses of Cygwin.
Jonathan: Set CYGWIN=nontsec as an environment variable for your user.
(Note that if you run certain things like sshd, ntsec must be on for them.
- so either don't set it off in the all users environment, or make sure to
explicitly set CYGWIN via cygrunsrv when installing services that need to
change user context.)
