Thanks that helps in examining it.

I can't quite place why but my instincts inform me that you
have latched onto something.  Some sort of one character
buffering error in the io libraries under cygwin.  Most
likely in the windos libs.

Well, we have two reports of this fixing the rsync hang
problem when signals failed.  I'd like a little more testing
before mainlining it.
