Yes, that's very unfortunate. As far as I could find out, that's a known bug (or
feature, or whatever) in Cygwin.

Sadly, I have no idea how to fix that without telling users to install chmod,
cygwin bash and fixing permissions manually. That's certainly not the best way
to deal with that wide-spread issue.
