Thank you very much for your help. Rsync works much better now.

The permission problem may be related to the setting of the CYGWIN
variable. This variable may contain several options, but the one you should
look at is ntsec/nontsec. If CYGWIN=ntsec, then the cygwin DLL tries to
POSIX permissions using NT ACLs. It works too good, or not very, depending
how you look at it. If CYGWIN=nontsec, then the cygwin DLL doesn't do
when a CYGWIN process tries to set protections. This lets the native Windows
protections operate as you would expect.
Between my Cygwin boxes, I make sure that CYGWIN=nontsec for rsync.
