You mailer is not setting your charset properly - please fix for readability.

Would change that to:
...
 other:r-x
 default:user::rwx
 default:group::rwx
 default:other:r-x

Check icalcs shows similar permissions to getfacl, and use icacls or Windows
Explorer directory Properties/Security to fix permissions, then retry getfacl
and ls -l.
You may have to use Windows Explorer Security to propagate the DACL changes down
your tree.

Check your cygwin directory ACLs and DACLs, and apply similar changes as required.

My X start shortcut runs as me:
	C:\usr\local\cygwin64\bin\run.exe --quote /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c "cd; exec
/usr/bin/startxwin"
