Sorry if this is an FAQ, I've searched the archives but found nothing.
I run under XP, CYGWIN=tty ntsec.
Files produced by a range of mechanisms (at least FileOutputStream in
Java, xemacs, MS Word) show up as executable (-rwxrwxrwx), which is
somewhere between distracting, irritating and a real problem. What am
I doing wrong?
