PATCH: test on Cygwin

This works around a problem with the tests on my version of Cygwin (not the
most recent) where rm -rf hung on a file which didn't have write
permission (i.e. did have the read-only bit set).  It was a Samba-mounted

Andrej, have you seen this and do you know if it's fixed yet?

There are various other failures on my version of Cygwin:  part of the
problem is that the test suite doesn't yet handle skipping tests for known
unsupported features.
