your are right, it is possible to circumvent security settings using that mechanism, shame
on me!!

The problem arises from Cygwin 1.x environment itself, and it seems as if I have missed that
in the NT specific sections of the source code, due to the fact that I thought only the Unix
sources would matter.

I have posted a bug report and will fix this ASAP. Have you any suggestions where to look
for, so I speed up the fix?!
