I created a patch for cygwin1.dll which solves a problem with rsync on
cygwin platform, caused by national characters in filenames ("file has 
vanished" error message). Patch, cygwin1.dll and readme available at

The patch received little testing, but so far it works for me.
I would like to hear comments, especially if someone finds information in
readme.txt incomplete or incorrect.
