Please help : Strange 'file has vanished' behaviour with rsync on windows.

What are "mypc1" and "mypc2"?  Can you successfully ssh into them?  Can 
you successfully ssh into them as user1 and user2?  When you do ssh into 
them as user1 and/or user2, can you cd into /myshare1/dir1 and 
/myshare2/dir2 ?

You need to be very specific about what you're actually doing and what 
you have set up, or we can't help you.
