Admin can access all files in nonadmin user cygwin file tree

Mon Apr 18 03:11:00 GMT 2016

When I open a mintty terminal as administrator, I am able to access all the
files in the file tree rooted at ~nonAdminUserAccount, even though that
directory & all subdirectories have mode bits drwx------+.  Is this to be
expected?  I'm using Windows 7 and "cygcheck -cd" shows version 2.2.1-1 for
the cygwin entry.
