No, I was pretty sure that people had run the cygwin rsync in daemon mode,
and since last week I got ssh access to a W2K machine running cygwin I
just tried it out.  It does work, at least on the simple example I used.
I was surprised that I didn't even need to use "use chroot = no" because
I thought people had earlier reported that that was needed.  My rsyncd.conf
contains only:
        path = /path/to/a/directory
