It sounds like the hang occurs whenever rsync performs incremental
transfer.  I don't have a good idea as to why; one possibility is that
rsync is producing a pattern of network traffic that confuses cygwin.
Anyway, you might be able to fix the problem at the expense of more
network traffic by disabling incremental transfer using the
--whole-file option.
