And I'm sure the problem is that this well-intended change to the script
fails on the assumption that LOGONSERVER is always populated. It isn't
for me on Vista.

cygwin-service-installation-helper.sh:2884:      # This test succeeds on
domain member machines only, not on DCs.
cygwin-service-installation-helper.sh:2885:      if [
"\\\\${COMPUTERNAME,,*}" != "${LOGONSERVER,,*}" \
cygwin-service-installation-helper.sh:2886:        -a "${LOGONSERVER}" !=
"\\\\MicrosoftAccount" ]
cygwin-service-installation-helper.sh:2887:      then
cygwin-service-installation-helper.sh:2888:     # Lowercase of USERDOMAIN
cygwin-service-installation-helper.sh:2889:
csih_PRIVILEGED_USERNAME="${COMPUTERNAME,,*}+${username}"
cygwin-service-installation-helper.sh:2890:      fi
cygwin-service-installation-helper.sh:2891:    fi

I fixed this by modifying the test to check LOGONSERVER is not empty:

if [ -n "${LOGONSERVER}" -a "\\\\...

Can this be fixed in the next release?

Sure, please provide a patch, I'll check it in and release a new csih
soonish.

I would, but there's a couple of hitches. Without understanding the
syntax (and I should bring up the bash man page here, I will do after
this), I can't be sure that the following test:

"\\\\${COMPUTERNAME,,*}" != "${LOGONSERVER,,*}"

wasn't designed to handled an empty LOGONSERVER variable. Though it
looks to me that it is a binary test (i.e. handling both variables being
empty).

And secondly, I am not sure that chucking in the -n "${LOGONSERVER}"
test is safe in a Vista domain environment. From the comment about the
line, it seems like the original author of those lines, whomever that
may be, might have a strong understanding to make the modification.

But that's not constructive on my part. I'll come up with a patch in the
next 24 hours (it is late where I am now).
