Wasn't there a recent thread on this issue, and wasn't it fixed so that
cygwin 1.5.25-7 reports directories as writable in spite of the DOS
read-only attribute bit? Without cygcheck output, I can't guarantee which
version of cygwin this problem was against; but I still suspect that it is
with cygwin itself and not coreutils/bash.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
