For me is:
$  ls -l /usr/lib/octave/3.6.4/oct/i686-pc-cygwin/urlwrite.oct
-rwxr-xr-x 1 marco None 106510 Feb 23 09:38 
/usr/lib/octave/3.6.4/oct/i686-pc-cygwin/urlwrite.oct

it seems to me that ???????? is coming from an error in
your cygwin setup. It is not an octave issue.

It seems you never correctly updated your
/etc/passwd

see "man mkpasswd"

What is the outcome of command "whoami" ?

please follow:

specifically
"Run cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out and include that file as an 
attachment in your report. Please do not compress or otherwise encode 
the output. Just attach it as a straight text file so that it can be 
easily viewed."
