Hi, Corinna:

Here is simple SSHFS output with the patched cygwin1.dll:

    billziss@windows:/cygdrive/y$ ls -l
    total 12
    -r--r--r-- 1 nodomain+nobody nodomain+nobody 15 Jun 23 23:57 Foo.txt
    ---------- 1 nodomain+nobody nodomain+nobody 15 Jul 15 16:48
    d--------- 1 nodomain+nobody nodomain+nobody  0 Jul 15 16:49 opt

And here are the actual permissions reported to the OS (and Cygwin):

    billziss@windows:/cygdrive/y$ for f in *; do cacls $f /S; done



You will note that nodomain+nobody is used for both user and group. Which
my understanding is that it is legal in Windows. [I note however that
Cygwin is able to distinguish between Unknown+User and Unknown+Group.]

Let me know what you think.
