Cygwin is certainly a moving target, especially these days.

I thought I'd read that daemon mode wasn't working on Cygwin, but it
was a mistake for me to assert that on this list without having tried
it myself.  I should know better, too.  Mea culpa.

I'm in a position to test rsync with Cygwin on Win98 and NT 4.0 in all
possible "modes".  I'll endeavour to do that, and report back.
Unfortunately it will be a few days before I can make progress.

Sorry to confuse the issue so badly.
