Should the group of my user be None?

Thank you for your replies.

The permission of files under ~/.ssh can't be changed to 600 when their 
group owner is None. I have to chgrp -R Users (or Administrators, or any 
other group name other than None) ~/.ssh to make it possible to run 
chmod on them. I suppose this is a bug of cygwin on Windows 8/8.1 ?
