I can hardly believe that the above data is helpful for the average Cygwin
user ...

Reporting Problems (https://cygwin.com/problems.html) tells you to at least
attach the output of cygcheck:

    "Run "cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out" and include that file as an
     attachment in your report. Please do not compress or otherwise encode
     the output. Just attach it as a straight text file so that it can be
     easily viewed."

You might also want to show us the output of

 - getfacl and
 - icacls

applied to both the file "chap4.ps" and the current directory ...
