That is the description of what Cygwin does to emulate a user context
for remote access to shares - you may want to set up and try methods 1,
2, and 3 to see what works with your network shares.

First step may be to change or remap your userid to one not containing
spaces using /etc/passwd; see
	https://cygwin.com/faq.html#faq.setup.name-with-space
then
	https://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/ntsec.html#ntsec-mapping-samba
