If I set the permissions of a file to be read only I can still delete
it, or modify it w/out warning.
chmod 444 test.txt
echo "what" >> test.txt
In ubuntu I get an error, in cygwin it just modifies the file.
This is an administrator acct if that affects the issue. I am using 1.7
$ uname -srv
CYGWIN_NT-5.2-WOW64 1.7.3(0.225/5/3) 2010-04-03 11:26
