Thanks for the suggestion. But it seems to be only ME that’s doing this;notepad, wordpad, MSVC all edit+save w/o changing cygwin’s rights. And as far as I can tell, the ownership of these files is indeed mine. Although maybe the problem is that I did use cygwin to change ownership of all my files after the crash – you’re right that the ownership was messed up before. But I don’t know how to change ownership with WinXP, there’s no security tab in file properties. Is there some other way?
