I explained what the problem is already. The buzzword is WRITE_DAC.
Apparently you don't have permissions to change file permissions
on that share. Cacls should show the exact layout of the file and
directory DACLs. Does `chmod' work for you? It shouldn't either.

Linux doesn't care for the DACL.

You could talk to your admin first to find out if that is by design and
maybe there could be something changed to allow changing permissions.
Otherwise, just mount the share with the noacl flag.
Again, I don't know why this happens. I can not reproduce this problem
on my NTFS shares, other than by removing the WRITE_DAC permission from
the affected files and directories. If there's any way to fix or
workaround it in Cygwin, somebody who has that problem has to hunt it
