Whoops sorry.  In my attempt to cover the real users and password I 
accidentally named everything test.
It should be:

         path = /home/test/test1
         read only = false
         auth users = test
         hosts allow =
         secrets file = /etc/shh_secret

persmissions 600
owner root:root


permissions 600
owner root:root

Windows XP cygwin permission 600
Windows XP cygwin owner <my login name>:Administrators (i have admin 
access )

Is there a possibility that there is a conflict between cygwin rsync 
2.6.3 and debain rsync 2.6.4?

Or could it still be a Windows persmission/ownership issue?
