You can use the 'bzr.exe' that comes with TBzr, and *not* use cygwin's bzr.

The issue is that cygwin is adding posix-like semantics that don't exist
natively on Windows. So a native Windows app doesn't *see* something
like 'executable', because that isn't tracked in NFTS/FAT in the same
way. (I'm not entirely sure where cygwin stores the exec bit.)
