I doubt it's related to Cygwin. mkpasswd and mkgroup are not using
your username or password, but they depend on the credentials stored
in your account's access token. It looks to me as if either your
local machine or the daomin controler somehow got your credentials
messed up. Did you try to reboot or to log off and log on again?
Also, are you sure you only changed your password and nothing else
has changed? It's possible that some permissions have been dropped
from your account by the domain admin due to changes in the domain.
