ntsec and shell script problem

This is just a bug report, I've got no suggestions on a fix just now :[

problem: auto generated files, such as config.status and the libtool
script, are create with permisions
-rw-rw-rw-, not

CYGWIN=$'ntsec binmode'

Background: I'm looking into why libtool is currently broken, and one of
the problems is that the libtool script is created without execute

My suspicion is that the files are checked by cygwin for #!/bin/foo at
create time, (which will fail as len==0), set to rw-rw-rw-. IMO the
correct behaviour should be to set the x bit on all files when they are
created, as long as it would be inherited from the directory above (I've
included a ls -al for reference), and not touch the x bit unless a
userland program calls chmod.


in this listing, both libtool and config.status are scripts, that should
have the x bit set.

$ ls -al
