It's not perfect but I've always had trouble with all of the 
modifications Cygwin makes to a file's permissions to support 
POSIX-style ACLs. I do miss being able to manage them with chmod and 
setfacl though.

For those wishing to set their ssh config to 600 (as recognized by 
Cygwin's ssh), use the following:

Reset file permissions:
   icacls config /t /q /c /reset

Inheritence must be disabled to alter other groups:
   icacls config /inheritance:d

Effectively regarded as "group":
   icacls config /remove:g "Authenticated Users"
   icacls config /remove:g "Users"

Regarded as "other":
   icacls config /remove:g "Everyone"

Add the current user as the owner:
   icacls config /grant "%USERNAME%:rw"
