AFAIK, it has similar problems to those experienced by MinGW, (or
to be strictly accurate, by MSYS), if it is deployed with a FAT32
file system, rather than with NTFS.  On NTFS, with Win2K, I don't
see any problem with Cygwin's `test -x'.

MSYS has the problem, regardless of the file system, because we
aim to support identical behaviour for both file systems.  We still
aim to support users of Win9x, so we have to adopt FAT32 as lowest
common denominator.
