Another, more technical, Windows permissions problem (likely APR issue)

There seems to be something more fundamental about all of the security
bits. I noticed this behavior last night but put off looking into it
(and then thought it may have been an old bug as I couldn't get the
latest revisions working). If I right click on the various directories
that are created (the files are OK) by Subversion and switch to the
Security tab (Windows NT) the following dialog pops up:

The permissions on <folder name> are incorrectly ordered, which may
cause some entries to be ineffective. Press OK to continue and sort the
permissions correctly, or Cancel to reset the permissions.

No one is likely to notice it as it is quite rare to go mucking around
in that tab :). (Only reason I was there was to see if my "Subversion"
property page was being displayed.) I'm assuming this is an APR issue
in the directory creation code.

I found some information on what is likely the root of the problem (from
the cygwin user manual chapter on ntsec):


I'll look into it more tomorrow when I get back from class and try to
find the cause. I've been meaning to learn more about how Win32 file
permissions work anyway :).
