Cygwin already has the "noacl" mount option which fakes the uid/gid and
permissions for that file system so that they always look sane from the
POSIX perspective and then you'll find out when you access the file
whether you have access.  While it's generally a sign of some
problematic configuration someplace else and introducing some other
problems when you have to use it, the OP could maybe tell us if that
makes a difference to the reported problem.
