4303            res = _wopen (mpath_w, (oflag & ~_O_CREAT) | _O_NOINHERIT, 
mode);
(gdb) s
4304          if (res < 0)
(gdb) p res
$6 = -1
(gdb) p errno
$7 = 13

So it must be this.

#define EACCES          13      /* Permission denied */

In both cases the original file exists right before calling _wopen()
but there is a difference.  On 25.0.91 the file remains read-only but
on 24.5 the file is writable right before calling _open().  Now we
have some clue here.
