Ok... You ask (set your umask) your computer to do something, and then
expect it do to something else?
Analogous situation:
$ touch foo bar
$ rm foo
<computer deletes foo>
"No, stupid computer, you should have realized I wanted to delete bar

As to why the behaviour has changed, ntsec is now on by default in recent
Cygwin DLLs.
