Win2k, rsync, and ssh on cygwin

The subject line pretty much says it all. Oh, that plus I'm tearing my
hair out trying to get it all to play nice together.

rsync version = 2.5.5 protocol version 26
OpenSSH_3.5p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090608f
cygwin -- downloaded in the last 3 days from official mirrors.

I'm trying to make one Win2k box rsync with another Win2k box. I managed
to get it such that an initial rsync (box A pushed bunches o' files to
box B) was slow, but functional. 

Trying to make a second rsync occur has completely escaped me. ssh hogs
up 99.9% of the CPU (on box A, the "sender"), a profiler shows not much 
in the way of actual traffic going out of box A, box B remains mostly
idle, occasionally getting something from rsync.

Any pointers on where I can find the solution to this problem? (Aside
from sticking a freakin' Debian box in between the Win2k boxes because
they can both talk to a 3rd Debian box I have access to for testing, but isn't
really an option for daily usage.)
