No clue, I assume it is some bug in cygwin, since this happens to any file 
created on this drive via Cygwin.

build@zre-win-002 /cygdrive/z/current/WINDOWS
$ whoami
build

build@zre-win-002 /cygdrive/z/current/WINDOWS
$ ls -l blah
ls: cannot access blah: No such file or directory

build@zre-win-002 /cygdrive/z/current/WINDOWS
$ touch blah
l
build@zre-win-002 /cygdrive/z/current/WINDOWS
$ ls -l blah
-rw-r--r-- 1 ???????? ???????? 0 2010-09-08 15:45 blah

build@zre-win-002 /cygdrive/z/current/WINDOWS
$ rm blah

build@zre-win-002 /cygdrive/z/current/WINDOWS
