I finally installed a Win box at home, and ran into the same
problem. Well, I am afraid that's another stupid bug :-(

In w3c.jigsaw.daemon.ServerHandlerMaanger.java, I access the Unix
class before checking the options. You should patch that to be:

    public void unixStuff() {
	// Do we have specific UNIX stuff in configuration ?
	String user   = props.getString(SERVER_USER_P, null);
	String group  = props.getString(SERVER_GROUP_P, null);
	Unix   unix   = null; // don't access native code until needed

	// Check that UNIX native methods are available:
	if ((user != null) || (group != null)) {
	    unix = Unix.getUnix();
	    if ( ! unix.isResolved() ) {
		String msg = ("You used either the -user or -group command "

Instead of what it is currently. I will wait one more week before
putting out a new jigsaw.zip class file with all the bug fixes found
so far...
