Let me get this straight: removing Windows permissions that conflict with POSIX permissions is âoverengineered,â so your solution is to ignore all permissions? I think Iâll stick with my solution.
I couldnât use noacl anyway, because I use db_home: windows in my nsswitch.conf file, which means my $HOME is outside Cygwinâs mount table. Iâd have to individually map each %USERPROFILE% subdir I wanted into /home/warren in order to use noacl.
