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.
$ id build
uid=503(build) gid=513(None) groups=513(None)
$ grep build /etc/passwd
$ grep 513 /etc/group
