Shared folsers under Vista

Folders that I create with Cygwin using mkdir appear to be shared - sort
of. They are denoted with the shared folder icon, and when I use Windows
Explorer to delete them I get the warning about the folder being shared.

When I look at the folder's properties, however, Explorer insists the
the folder is not shared.

Can someone explain how to avoid the sharing in the first place? It
doesn't seem to happen to everyone.
