This is a known cygwin problem that is often mentioned on the list
(google for "rsync cygwin pipe hang" if you want to read about it and
the available work-arounds).  Hopefully the cygwin folks will fix it
before too much longer.  I'd also recommend asking them about it so
that they are aware that people are still interested in a fix.
