[OT] Re: Serious problem with perl -pi -e
Message ID:
Setting this variable will be helpful, and will make the FS behave more
like a std unix one. It will support things like sticky bit, 000 perms,
etc etc by mapping NTFS acl stuff.

However, the cygwin files you have in your system, after setting this,
will be like rwxrwxrwx.

This is because when your files were created, and when their permissions
were set, ACL mapping was not being done, and the NTFS acls were not

You know, anyone on your system as it is can just do 
'export CYGWIN=ntsec' and enjoy practically full access to your box even
if this variable is not set at the system level, so you might as well do
it and fix what you can.
