Personally I wouldn't trust a closed-source authentication module as far as I could throw it - it's bad enough trying to keep on top of the bugs in the MS stuff without third party authentication keeping me awake at nights... There is nothing to stop cvsnt & cygwin hooking the GetUserName() function with an API hook - this is documented quite well in MSDN and would mean that all NT programs which relied on this would return the correct user. What would be better of course is for someone to reverse-engineer the GetUserName function and work out *why* it sucks so badly - it might be possible to fix it somehow.
