"None" is always the primary group for non-admin users on NT.
So that's what you find for all files created from plain
If you've set another group as primary group in /etc/passwd,
you can create new files in Cygwin and they will have that
group set in the ACL. Or call chown/chgrp on existing files
to change that if you like.
