Under Cygwin, `set | grep UID` gives me :

On the server side, the files are indeed owned by 11385, but this id
doesn't match DOMAIN\testuser, which id is 10000, set by winbind. Rsync
seems to work as if I had used the --numeric-ids ; maybe it's a more a
cygwin problem than a rsync one ? I've tried to compile rsync-2.6.3pre1
under cygwin, without any improvements.
