In case this helps clarify the issue for anyone, I *can* manually create an
ssh tunnel from my Win2K workstation to the remote MYSERVER, and *then*
rsync successfully over that tunnel:

ssh -v -v -v -p3000 -L 873: MYUSERNAME at MYSERVER

nice -n 20 rsync --recursive --verbose --verbose --checksum --times
--modify-window 2  /cygdrive/f/bkp MYUSERNAME at MYSERVERIP:TESTDIR
opening tcp connection to port 873
building file list ...
expand file_list to 4000 bytes, did move

So it's successful when rsync itself isn't initiating the ssh tunnel... I
don't know what this means.
