I can test that before releasing cygwin's 2.5.6-1 package, unfortunately 
I have almost *no* free time until after friday (university test on 
thursday ^_^)
Anyway Max is also right, local issues can be resolved locally with much 
speed, even if "in the long run" it's of course better to put them in 
rsync cvs too.

BTW: I wonder if the sleepms(30) is still needed, it's quite a bit of 
time that my "build.samba.org" hourly cron doesn't produce a "hanged 
rsync"... (must check that too)
