IIRC cygwin reports based on the NTFS permission, but actually tries before
failing... but I suspect it's not consistent across the board on this.
If so, then why does cygwin fails on the attempt when Notepad succeed?
Or maybe you mean that most of the time there is an attempt, but for
whatever reason, the "open(.., O_WRONLY)", or whatever "cp" and "cat"
are using, doesn't try?
