I unpacked the archive on /tmp as Dave suggested and the file permissions got respected. I´ve attached the cygcheck on a previous message.

Kind regards, Simon.

Show us an example of a command line you're using. Also check whether this is perhaps some kind of inherited windoze ACL from the directory you're unpacking in by trying it in another dir such as /tmp. If that doesn't work, let's see your cygcheck output as described at
