There's nothing you can do.  I have tested this scenario and it turns
out that it's a problem with the cyglsa DLL itself, not even related
to the permissions, but a generic problem.

I have fixed that in CVS (tested on W7 and XP).  The next developer
snapshot (I will create one today or tomorrow) on
http://cygwin.com/snapshots/ will contain this patch.  Just rip the
cyglsa.dll file from the cygwin-inst-YYYYMMDD.tar.bz2 package, copy
it to the /bin/cyglsa directory and reboot.  This should hopefully
fix your problem.  Please report back.


Thanks,
Corinna
