Cygwin has a bug in its pipe handling that will lose information and
cause rsync to stall -- until this is fixed, you must avoid using the
remote-shell-copy syntax (in which the programs communicate via pipes).
One solution would be to setup an rsync daemon on the destination system
and use ssh to forward a port into the local network of the firewall
system, switching the client command over to a daemon-using copy.
