Apart from that, the file permission settings are the same in Vista
compared to older OSes. The exception is the UAC stuff which could
result in some executables having less permissions than usual, if, for
instance, Internet Explorer has been used to download the executable.
We can hopefully rule this out here, so it's just some permission
problem which has nothing to do with the base OS. Note: Not all
problems on Vista are Vista's (or, FWIW, Cygwin's) fault. See, for
example http://cygwin.com/acronyms/#PEBCAK for one possible explanation
of the problem.
