Inheriting security permissions from target directory withCygwin

Try to use ssh-tunnelling and rsync daemon, instead of built-in ssh support
OpenSSH on cygwin must have CYGWIN=ntsec to make things work. This is
inherited by built-in rsync ssh on server side. It results with unwanted
adjustment of your files' permissions. When you use rsync daemon, it is
possible to specify CYGWIN=nontsec during initialization (cygrunsrv). You
can then establish an ssh tunnel to send rsync requests to this daemon.
