This is outside of rsync's hands.  Rsync just calls readdir() to get the
names of the files that are present, and then calls open() on those
names.  So, the names rsync is given don't work to open the files.

Someone affected by this will eventually need to do some investigation
to see where the fault lies.  It might be in the cygwin compatibility
layer (assuming you're using a cygwin version of rsync), or it might be
a weird interaction with a networked file system.  If you (or someone
else) can do so, please do some experiments to try to narrow down what
is going wrong and get in touch with those responsible (and feel free to
report to the list what you discover).
