The problem with the given permissions is that they don't reflect
anything comparable with POSIX ACLs.  The Cygwin ACL code is based
on trying to emulate POSIX ACL behaviour and the permissions you
have set on these files are not giving the user any permissions.

The workaround for you is to use "noacl" mounts for paths affected by
this (usually all paths outside the Cygwin tree).
