If the remote drive supports proper NTFS ACLs, any file cygwin creates on it
/while/ CYGWIN=smbntsec is in effect will have proper NTFS access permissions,
so, e.g. if it has rwx------, it will only have access permissions for your
windows user account. You might want to chmod -R 700 (or whatever group/world
perms you'd prefer) your home drive to make sure nobody can go snooping.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
