This sounds like the cygwin problem with non-blocking pipes that has
been mentioned many times before.  I'd suggest checking on the cygwin
mailing list for signs of progress.  Make sure that you're using the
very latest cygwin version in your testing, and if that still fails,
you can fall back on using an rsync daemon instead of a remote shell
for the transfer (since this avoids the buggy pipe code in cygwin).
