Is anyone reading the discussion in cygwin-xfree?  If so, I was
wondering if you had any idea what was causing the problem.

Out of curiousity, would adding something like:

  if (myself->uid == uid)
    return 0;

to the top of seteuid32 be "wrong"?  It seems like xterm is just
calling setuid with its own uid.  So, this test would short circuit

I don't know what would be failing, otherwise to cause this problem.
