Latest Snapshot

You complained that you weren't getting much feedback from the latest
snapshot, so I figured I might as well write in. I've been using the
snapshot since I saw the first post, and for the most part I haven't had
any problems with it. I have found one strange thing though.
This is best shown by example.

The output of these commands differ with differing dlls:
With cygwin1.dll version 1.1.1, I get:
$ mkdir a
$ chmod a-w a
$ touch a/b
$ echo Hi >a/c
$ rm a/b
rm: a/b: Permission denied
$ rm a/c
rm: a/c: Permission denied
$ rm -rf a
rm: a/b: Permission denied
rm: a/c: Permission denied
rm: a: Permission denied
$ chmod a+w a
$ rm -rf a

However, with the new snapshot I get:
$ mkdir a
$ chmod a-w a
$ touch a/b
$ echo Hi >a/c
$ rm a/b
$ rm a/c
$ rm -rf a
rm: a: Permission denied
$ chmod a+w a
$ rm -rf a

I can delete files from a without having write permission to a when using
the new dll. This is not the behaviour that I would expect.

I do not know enough about the inner workings of cygwin to know for sure
whether or not its a problem with the snapshot, or if its a problem with
my setup. Attached is a copy out the output from `cygcheck -s -r -v`.

You guys do great work. Keep it up.
