     This doesn't have anything to do with daemon mode, but I haven't
seen this old patch applied to the rsync repository (I'm not sure that
it should be, though):

For me, at least, it's REQUIRED if I want reliable transfers between
Unix and NT (rsync initiated from NT).  I'm using a slightly old cygwin
1.3.2, however.
