Btw., it's not a bash bug.  What happens to you is by design.  Just
look into an `ls -ln' of the files and the lights will shine.

What I don't understand, though, is, why the permissions are set to
that value by setup.exe.  I thought it should give explicitely full
permissions to world.  At least I recall that I added some code to
setup.exe setting the security descriptor.  Is it not used in setup
