We use netapp here too, and we have a mixed NTFS/NT ACLS + NFS/Unix perms
domain. None of it works well for me from the cygwin side, I always find
myself having to use the win explorer shell extension to change the perms. If
I can help with some testing or diagnosis or anything, please feel free to
contact me offlist.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
