Are there any changes to the access control to /proc/<PID>/fd/1 in cygwin 3?

$ bash -c 'ls -dglo /dev/std* /proc/self /proc/$$ /proc/self/fd/'
lrwxrwxrwx 1 15 May 14 2013 /dev/stderr -> /proc/self/fd/2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 15 May 14 2013 /dev/stdin -> /proc/self/fd/0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 15 May 14 2013 /dev/stdout -> /proc/self/fd/1
dr-xr-xr-x 3 0 Jun 16 01:37 /proc/23846
lrwxrwxrwx 1 0 Jun 16 01:37 /proc/self -> 23846
lrwxrwxrwx 1 0 Jun 16 01:37 /proc/self/fd/0 -> /dev/pty0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 0 Jun 16 01:37 /proc/self/fd/1 -> /dev/pty0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 0 Jun 16 01:37 /proc/self/fd/2 -> /dev/pty0
the following seems to work as expected:
$ powershell Start-Process bash \"-c\",\"\'echo \>\>/dev/stdout hello
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
