This I had found... But not clearly understood whether I was
supposed to set it myself, or whether Cygwin would set an
initial value. I found it empty, and tried myself to give it
a value dynamically, without result, so that I did not set it
in my .bash_profile.

Thanks. This helpped.
I didn't even have to give the chmod again.
With the environment variable, the rights showed up correctly.
[I now set this to my .bash_profile]
Which is of course worrisome: in order to read my password,
on just needs to unset the CYGWIN environment variable...
