"rsync: not found" error with sshwindows

I'm trying to copy files from a Linux system to a Windows XP system running
sshwindows. I can use gFTP and log in just fine. sshwindows is based on
cygwin so you just use /cygdrive/c/ to access the Windows C: drive, etc.
But for some reason, rsync is having problems transferring files to this system:
[~]$ rsync -av /tmp/foo.txt user at windowsbox.com:/cygdrive/c/
user at windowsbox.com's password:
rsync: not found
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(189)
The only thing rsync will say is "not found", no matter how many "-v"s I add
to the command. However, /tmp/foo.txt definitely exists -- I can use that
same rsync command except with a different target, and it transfers fine.
And /cygdrive/c/ definitely exists on the Windows system; gFTP is able to
read & write that location with no problems, as are the scp and sftp
Is there a way I can get rsync to tell me exactly what it is that's "not
found"? And assuming it is referring to the /cygdrive/c/ path on the
Windows system, does anyone have any idea why rsync can't see it?
