As has been discussed quite a bit recently, there is a hang problem with
the cygwin version of rsync that no one has narrowed down yet (I haven't
seen it, personally, but I try not to use MS Windows if I can help it).
One solution is to switch the rsync under MS Windows into a daemon and
use that -- when rsync is handling the sockets directly (instead of
using a remote shell for the transfer) it appears to avoid the hang.
