Confirmed.  I'll investigate.

The S_IXUSR bit has no meaning for message queues.  In Cygwin it's used
to signal that the message queue is still being initialized.  The
initializing process always creates the file with S_IXUSR bit.  When the
initalization has been finished, it removes the S_IXUSR bit.
