Speaking of pragmatism: what about a CYGWIN environment variable to
turn off the behavior? That way, people like the OP could extract
their archives without worry, and it wouldn't affect the majority of
people. We could go one step beyond that and have rsync, tar, and so
on turn off the feature internally too so that everything just works.
