        There were further comments but, some
Erik/eric, the cygwin person supporting core utils 
at the time refused to 
allow me to process the bugs through core utils 
before being "ok'd" / triaged by the cygwin interface

This was a very serious bug that appeared in several
other areas where "update" conflicted with read-only
settings on sources that caused deletion of data off of
sources that were marked as 'read-only'.

Of course even after telling him how he could reproduce
the bug on linux using the "ignore case" feature on XFS, he
couldn't be bothered.

I also got ignored when mentioning this was related to the
"file changed as we read it" bug that kept resurfacing on
some filesystem that never became stable enough on linux for
a first release.
