Strict Mode for Client?

Is there a way to specify "strict modes = false" on the client side?

I'm having trouble getting the client to accept the password file on Windows
2000, since rsync doesn't want the file to be other-readable, but this
concept doesn't map too well to Windows.

Alternatively, if I could simply set the proper permissions on the passfile,
that would suit me fine, but it seems that although my Cygwin username is
administrator, and I'm logged into Windows as the sole member of the
administrators group, something is still awry.  If I set the file
permissions so that I can access it from within my Cygwin bash shell, rsync
complains that it's world readable.  The only way it doesn't complain about
that is if it can't read it at all.
