Permissions causing full backups?

I am using rsync/rsnapshot on Windows XP (via cygwin) to backup to a mapped
share (/u) on a Linux server. Im hoping to get this to work so that I
dont have to open an XP share to the network for Linux pull backups.
My current setup doesnt seem to give me incremental backups. See the du
$ /usr/bin/du -csh /cygdrive/u/docs_bkup/daily.0/
This looks like some kind of incremental but there are two problems:
1. Ive not changed any files between rsyncs (so there shouldnt even be
2. When I use the i option, the files being copied are copied because of
(ok, 3 problems..)
3. I can change a file on in the daily.# areas and none of the other
(supposedly linked) files get changed.
Here are the main points of my rsnapshot.conf:
interval daily 3
# Ive tried several configurations
this is the current one
rsync_long_args --delete --numeric-ids --relative
#If tested this both ways
# 0-> seems to copy less and du reports less space.
# just a test source hard to see the destination, but its .
backup /cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/Link/My Documents/My Music .
Any ideas or other things I can provide to help with this troubleshooting?
