I just uploaded 1.7.0-19.  I made the following changes

- Workaround for the problem Eric reported, a "permission denied" when
  creating files on a Samba shares mounted with "acl" option (default,
  replacement for CYGWIN=ntsec option, see comment in default /etc/fstab

- Removed the CYGWIN=binmode option.  We're now always using binmode
  for pipes and stuff.

- ls // now lists all SMB servers in all accessible domains and workgroups,
  instead of just the servers in the machine's member domain or workgroup.
