rsync 2.5.1 on NT/cygwin: can't handle filenames with non-latin1 character set

2nd problem when using rsync on NT: rsync can't handle filenames with "strange" characters in the filename; no remote system needs to be involved here, happens even rsync between two local directories:
$ rsync -av /cygdrive/c/data/transfer/Marisa/ Marisa/
building file list ... readlink Imagelep. 10?1: No such file or directory
readlink Imagelep. 11?2: No such file or directory
readlink Imagelep. 9?1: No such file or directory
rsync: read error: Connection reset by peer
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(151)
wrote 84 bytes read 20 bytes 208.00 bytes/sec
total size is 0 speedup is 0.00
rsync error: partial transfer (code 23) at main.c(537)
Those streange characters are mostly in files that have been created using a mac. I wouldn't mind some kind of name-mangling that removes these characters as long as the data in the files gets transfered correctly.
Any Idea how to work around this problem?
