I would imagine that the root cause is the same filename-translation
problem that folks are experiencing under cygwin:

If the name returned by readdir() can't be used to open the file,
there's nothing that rsync can do about it (unless someone can figure
out how to get the real filename to be returned by readdir() in the
first place).
