If you're not running the latest rsync, it's wise to check the ChangeLog 
of the latest version. You'll not only find the answer to the question at 
hand, but you'll learn about other things as well.



    - Some buffer sizes were expanded a bit, particularly on systems where
      MAXPATHLEN is overly small (e.g. cygwin).

That seems to be your problem. So upgrading to 2.6.7 will most likely fix 
this for you.
