After more extensive testing with this patch, I can confirm that it does 
indeed resolve this issue for me under Cygwin.

If Tev repackages his cwRsync package, I would recommend he applies this 
patch as this problem appears to be particularly noticeable with 
Cygwin.  He should also use the most recent cygwin1.dll in order to 
resolve the exit code problem.

I am assuming for simplicity's sake that Tevfik Karagülle is male, so my 
apologies if this is incorrect.
