rsync windows -> unix still hanging :(

I spent about 12 hours today writing a nice backup system based on
Mike Rubel's snapshot system; but much to my dismay, when I took it
for a test drive, I found that rsync hung on the first large directory
I tried to back up. Aiee!
A few web searches later, I realized that a lot of folks have seen this
problem. I saw one proposed fix...
This fix is in rsync 2.5.5-2, but rsync still hangs for me. I'm able to
sync a smaller directory but this larger one fails consistently.
My symptoms are much like the ones reported by other folks; if I run
a command like this...
rsync -vvv -a --delete --delete-excluded -e ssh othermachine:/c/gse/ t
...the last thing I see is
recv_generator(vst/sync/weird/ww 2.6 presets.txt,4866)
There are 4867 files in the folder I'm trying to back up, for what that's
worth. I've cruised the code briefly but I don't see anything obvious;
then again, I barely know how the guts of rsync work as far as forking
processes and whatnot. So I don't even know if the -vvv output is all
coming from one process.
Help! Am I the only one still seeing this hang?
