I've been using rsync cygwin->linux, 100Mbit ethernet for years and never
seen this. When I add encryption (zebedee, ssh) to the equation, I get
hangs. The buffering patch that was sent to the list a couple of weeks back
seems to help, but I think it just makes it harder to trigger. (The
buffering patch helps a great deal with performance.)

As for the right solution, I'm afraid I have no ideas.
