Wanted to check to see if you were aware of this permissions bug when
using Cygwin in Windows 8:
I was hoping I could run chgrp and chmod like the workaround
described, but chgrp only works if the full Cygwin is installed on
your system. We bundle several of the Cygwin utilities (rsync.exe,
cypath.exe, ssh.exe, ssh-keygen.exe) in with our application rather
than forcing users to install Cygwin. This had been working for all
Windows versions up until Windows 8.
Do you know when a fix would be available?
