Thanks for the report.  But for MS-Windows problems it would be most
appreciated if you contacted the Cygwin folks directly.  That platform
is not well understood here.

Does MS-Windows even have the concept of file modes?  I thought they
handled all of that with file extensions?  I assume that in order to
map capabilities that Cygwin would need to make some compromises.
Sorry but no help here.
