I can't reproduce it.  I've changed an executable to have the above
permissions and the admins group as owner and I was able to call
the executable with any of the shells, ash, bash and tcsh.

I did the same with configure.in in the Cygwin source tree but it
had no effect on the ability to configure and build the tree.
