NT file permissions

While using NTFS and setting CYGWIN=ntea, group permissions  
on files are not being reported correctly.

A given file has granted "full access control"  to everyone and still 
shows up as -rw-r--r--

Thus, a "test -w" fails on a file that is perfectly writable by me.

Is this a known problem or does anyone know of some more 
documentation I should be reading?
