I won't want to commit any changes until Cygwin is stable with:
1) SP3 and SP4
2) ntsec actice or inactive
3) with or without valid /etc files
It can default to the old behavior if /etc files aren't present or if
they're invalid but it can't crash. And I think ntsec ought to
default to on once everything is stable.

OK, but I do consider the requiring of /etc to be a significant
problem with the Cygwin system. As long as your changes don't make
the existing situation worse, I guess we can stall fixing this
situation until a later time...
