Thanks for the permissions tip. I had a closer look via file explorer,
select toplevel folder, rightclick, select properties, select security
tab, click advanced. There I saw that the necessary permissions were
'This folder only' instead of 'This folder, subfolders and files'. Now
it works fine.
Hey, I use Cygwin's vim! Thanks for providing this package. I use it for
quick edits. For my day-to-day Java/Web programming I prefer native
gVim, because the compiler plugins work out of the box and do not need
all this cygpath fiddling to invoke javac.
