Network drive file permissions: "Permission denied"

Since upgrading from Cygwin 1.5 to 1.7, I've been getting an error message on network drives that I haven't been getting on my local hard disk.  I wasn't getting anywhere before the upgrade to 1.7.

$ cp -pv t /h/
`t' -> `/h/t'
/bin/cp: preserving permissions for `/h/t': Permission denied

This also happens with programs besides cp.

sed: preserving permissions for `./sedVCLIN3': Permission denied
chmod: changing permissions of `head.htm': Permission denied
uudecode: chmod of txt.gif: Permission denied

Although this does not seem actually to stop me from doing what I need to do, it is VERY annoying.  I'd appreciate any suggestions about what I might be able to do to get rid of this error message.

cygcheck.out attached.  To save you the trouble of looking for what I guess are the most important places to look:

Thanks in advance for your help.
