No, it wasn't.  The idea is that if LOGONSERVER == COMPUTERNAME your
machine is not in a domain.  Actually, I *never* encountered an environment
in which LOGONSERVER isn't set.  Are you sure this isn't just some kind
of misconfiguration?  I don't think Cygwin is the only application
checking for LOGONSERVER.
