Windows XP
Cygwin 1.5.19-4
Using the bash shell

I have a situation where I have a binary executable. I do the following steps

chmod +x file
cvs add -kb file
cvs commit file
rm file
cvs up file

and when the file comes out there is no exectuable bits set. And then it fails to run when invoked via my makefiles.

The same thing happens if I check out a new tree.

It seems to be wrong but there may be something I am missing.
