I'm not interested in skipping the test; after all the path for the test
is Cygwin specific.  It's just not the correct thing to do for the
Cygwin specific path.  I believe 11 to be the correct test and will
pursue that upstream.  Marco suggested maybe 544(Administrator) but that
doesn't work with a typical user build while doing the same in Linux for
root group 0 as a typical user I would need to have elevated privilege
in Windows to use 544.
