Crash with Cygwin version

Anyone else have this problem?
If I rsync a directory from a cygwin PC (invoked on the PC) to a unix
server through ssh, the first time all works fine, then if I do it again
and there are no copys it crashes on the PC. If I touch one file on the PC
so it copys at least one file then all is OK.
I have the latest cygwin installed with freshly installed win2000 build
5.00.2195, and on the unix box the latest version from debian's "woody"
The debian version:
rsync version 2.5.4 protocol version 26
The cygwin version:
rsync version 2.5.5 protocol version 26
If I run the below, I get the following consistently just before it crashes.
rsync -avvv --delete -e ssh ./accounts \
>accounts/quickenw/whatsnew.wri is uptodate
>accounts/quickenw/~QW~LINK.QDT is uptodate
>accounts/~QW~LINK.QDT is uptodate
>send files finished
>total: matches=0 tag_hits=0 false_alarms=0 data=0
(cursor left here)
If I put the line below in before invoking rsync forcing one file to be
updated everything always works fine:
echo xxx > ./accounts/updated
When it crashes, the crash is "hard" it does not exit but hangs the
process, and sometimes corrupts enough that I cant kill the process from
windows task manager.
If I re-arrange the directory structure it still happens. It always
crashes just after displaying the second "recv_generator(dir,num)" entry
after the "total:" print.
Thanks. Peter K.
