Subject: Problem with Cron and Permissions...

|I recently upgraded cygwin (current version info at end of email) from a

This is more likely to be a Samba/Cygwin problem than a cron issue.

This being said, there are three easy things you can try
1) Use cron-config to run the daemon as yourself (nightbus) instead of using the default Local 
System account
    That will be OK as long as nightbus is the only cron user on that machine
2) Use cron-config to set "nosmbntsec" for CYGWIN   (the default for cron is "ntsec smbntsec",
     not sure what it is in your shell.
3) Update your /etc/group file. You should not see group names like mkgroup-l-d and mkgroup
