I checked with the IT guys, we are using NTFS on 
RAID 5 drives for the server running CVSNT. 
Tony, can you please elaborate on what you 
meant by "you can check with cygwin ls", I don't
 understand what your saying there. Does anyone
 else have any ideas why my system might be 
loosing the executable setting. I think it's really 
strange how it looses it on a commit.
