Access rights for directories

Hello, I'm using rxvt and I'm having a problem that folders I create (I 
create both from inside rxvt and using explorer) have different rights and 
thus are color-coded differently by rxvt. First I thought that directories 
created using cygwin's mkdir got one set of access rights and those created 
using explorer got another set. But I just tried in a test directory and the 
two directories got the same (the correct) access I don't know 
exactly when this occurs.
$ ls -al
total 0
drwxr-xr-x+  4 mikael None 0 Jun  1 00:33 ./
drwxrwxrwx+ 10 mikael None 0 Jun  1 00:33 ../
drwxr-xr-x+  2 mikael None 0 Jun  1 00:31 fromcygwin/
drwxr-xr-x+  2 mikael None 0 Jun  1 00:33 fromexplorer/

The only weird looking directory is the special .., and it's color-coded 
blue-on-green instead of blue-on-black. And I created test using 
mkdir...anyone know what's going on and is there a way to make sure all 
directories are created using the same access rights unless I explicitly 
state differently?
