That's it. I bet the problem disappears if you use a Cygwin text editor
such as vim.
When a native Windows app creates a file, it usually does not do
anything special with the ACL, so it gets whatever the default
inheritable permissions of the directory happen to be, which it looks
like are not correct.
You could also try a native editor that edits in-place instead of the
usual "create new file with temporary name then rename".
