This appears to be a bug in Cygwin.  Files written by a Windows process
confuses Cygwin's conversion of NTFS permissions to Unix, resulting in
Cygwin thinking the file has no permissions.  The fix is to open /etc/fstab
and replace

none /cygdrive cygdrive binary,posix=0,user 0 0


none /cygdrive cygdrive binary,noacl,posix=0,user 0 0

and restart the cygwin bash shell.
