ntsec and remote copy

I have a problem with ntsec I think.
I copied files from a remote disk (a Windows NT server) using the explorer.
These files are then set to the following UID:

ls -l test.txt
-rwx------    1 65535    None         1225 Dec 10 11:30 test.txt

If I create a file locally myself, I nicely get
-rw-rw-rw-    1 kris     None         1230 Dec 10 13:46 local.txt

and the same nice UID when I use bash and cp to copy the remote file. It's
also fine when I do an 'ls -l' of the remote file by the way.

So, where does cygwin get that funny UID (and permissions) from?
