The problem is that windows programs create files seen by cygwin as
excecutable. I find this quite annoying myself, as an 'ls' outside a cygwin
controlled directoy floods my screen with green text. (my 'ls' is an alias
for 'ls --color'). It would be nice if the default for windows programs was
the other way around.
