If you're talking about the FAT attribute FILE_ATTRIBUTE_READONLY,
you're right. This bit isn't set in the open() call in Cygwin.
Setting the NTFS permissions with ntsec or the extended attribute
with ntea is ok, though.
However, I've checked in a fix. Try the next developers snapshot
or current from CVS.
Thanks for the report,
