i seem to remember windows permission inheritance can cause this kind of
problem ? maybe have a search of the archives, but its still monday morning
so my brain may not be working properly yet.

Yes, you have to have ntsec or ntea set in your CYGWIN environement variable
to be able to use chmod.

It seems you don't have ntsec or ntea set in your CYGWIN variable.
As a workaround you can always use the keyword
in your gnupg options file, but I think the proper way is to use
CYGWIN=ntsec (plus your other options).
