Installed files permissions


My vague memory indicates that at some time, the permissions for files in 
/usr/doc/ncurses-5.2/, for eg, were -rw-rw-r--. Now, after a reinstall 
(forced by domain change) I get:

$ ls --color -l /usr/doc/ncurses-5.2/

total 445
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain U    24376 Jan  9  2002 ANNOUNCE
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain U     9177 Jan  9  2002 Ada95.html
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain U   223203 Jan  9  2002 NEWS
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain U     7257 Jan  9  2002 README
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain U    10727 Jan  9  2002 TO-DO
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain U    24431 Jan  9  2002 announce.html
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain U    33688 Jan  9  2002 hackguide.html
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain U      883 Jan  9  2002 index.html
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain U   119310 Jan  9  2002 ncurses-intro.html

... and the color for files is, obviously, green. Is this normal?

As posible causes for this, I might have played with the security settings 
for drive C:, but don't know what I modified.

When I do a:
touch ~/someNewFile
I get 
-rw-rw-rw-    1 rudy     Domain U        0 Sep  4 00:14 someNewFile
which is ok and, looking in ACE list, looks like cygwin is setting custom 
permission entries for that file.

So, my second question is: isn't setup expected to do the same?

As environment: fresh install from scrach on win2k with latest setup, nt 
4.0 domain controller, mkpasswd/mkgroup -l -d, CYGWIN=ntsec

Thanks in advance,
