I learned more about the situation. Actually, cygwin has a concept of
umask, so that permissions of created files depend on user's
settings. On my system umask was 0, so that produced executables were
world-executable, but this can be easily changed.

I user Bob had "umask 700" in his ~/.profile, it would be the case.
