           Summary: rsync gets stuck on first file
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.6
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: domulys at

I'm trying to use rsync to copy several pictures from my work computer
( to my home computer.  I'm using cygwin.  This is what I run
on my home computer:

  $ rsync -avu --progress Michael at"My\ Pictures/" .

It successfully creates the first few directories, but when it starts on the
first file, it seems to get stuck.  The progress bar stays at all zeros, and it
doesn't seem to be using any CPU.

  Michael at's password:
  receiving file list ...
  1986 files to consider
           0   0%    0.00kB/s    0:00:00

I don't think I'm doing anything unusual or fancy... maybe there's something
about my syntax that is wrong and I'm just not seeing it.
