Applying the "Connection reset by peer"

Hi all,

we're suffering heavily from the "connection reset by peer" problem when
running Rsync on WinNT.
Great was our relief when seeing Randy's message in

I immediately installed the full Cygwin to recompile Rsync, but since I'm
far from a C guru, I'm a bit puzzled with the last 2 lines in Randy's

cleanup.c:_exit_cleanup() just before exit(code)
socket.c:start_accept_loop() just before _exit(ret)

should I simply put "_exit_cleanup()" before "exit(code)" in cleanup.c with
nothing in between the "()" ? (same for socket.c?)

I disregard these two lines and compiled the EXE again and it seems to be
working, haven't tested it thoroughly though...

Your help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance,
