Thanks I'm not criticising Cywin's ACL behaviour just looking for
guidance on anyone who has used 1.7 with existing Windows applications.
In my case I wish to use the cygwin toolset but operate within the
context of the Windows OS/Tools which clearly rely on Windows based ACLs
and trying to find a reasonable workable approach to the problem. I'll
read the mount table section you supplied and the other sections on
cygwin's ACL behaviour.
