File over 2GB using Cygwin

I am trying to rsync a file of 10gb between an NT host running Cygwin 4.10
and a Solaris 8 host running rsync 2.5.1 but am having problems with what
appears to be a 2gb file limit - the truncation point occurs at 2096111616
bytes. The target filesystem definately supports files over 2GB.

Any ideas how to overcome this limitation?
