This is NOT "windows" view, this is Cygwin view.
For ACL, check getfacl <file>.

See my previous note about setting noacl flag to increase interoperability
with native programs.

I'm not clear on how exactly renaming was done, so can't comment.

This is normal (documented) behavior for less-than-trivial permission setups.
However, without a full dump of cacls it's hard to judge correctness of the
ACL on a given file.
