The exact contents aren't the point. The point is that file1, created
under Cygwin, is not readable by UoW (or writable either), whereas file2,
created by very similar methods under Win32 proper, is readable and
writable by UoW. So, for example, if I unpack a tarball of source
code using Cygwin tar, none of the files from the tarball are
readable by UoW.
