I've read that page multiple times, and it still looks greek to me. :/ 
What I know is, the CIFS drive is mounted as the user "build".  The user I 
log into windows with is "build".  The user cygwin runs under is "build". 
So all 3 of those match.  I don't see why there's any issue at all 
determining who owns the files.

build@zre-win-002 ~
$ id build
uid=503(build) gid=513(None) groups=513(None)

build@zre-win-002 ~
$ grep build /etc/passwd

build@zre-win-002 ~
$ grep 513 /etc/group
