[Cygwin latest snapshot]
I just noticed (on two different Windows XP) Cygwin installation that
Shebang shell scripts are not executable on FAT32 volumes (like usb
drives). The mount man page says "Normally, files ending in certain
extensions (.exe, .com, .bat, .cmd) are assumed to be executable.
Files whose first two characters begin with '#!' are also considered
to be executable."
Is that expected behaviour?
