I cannot reproduce this with yesterday's CVS: user-uid returns 1004,
which is identical to what file-attributes returns for files owned by
me.  Are you using a recent CVS?  If so, could you please debug
through w32.c:init_user_info, where it sets the value of
dflt_passwd.pw_uid, and see what went wrong?  The value of 123
suggests that the syscalls to get the real owner and group of the
current Emacs process (starting at open_process_token) somehow failed.
