Hi all,

Has anyone used rsync / cygwin with Vista? I'm trying on a 32 bit 
version of the OS and getting the following error:

30 [main] ? (3664) C:\Program Files\rsync\rsync.exe: *** fatal error - 
couldn't allocate heap, Win32 error 0, base 0x840000, top 0x850000, 
reserved_size 614400, allocsize 65536, page_const 4096
23 [main]  rsync 6252 child_copy: stack write copy failed, 
0x22DC10..0x230000, done 0, windows pid 2284356, Win32 error 5

Seems like the process doesn't have permission to use heap/stack? ... 
Not too familiar with this OS.. rsync is actually one of the first 
things I tried on it... Anyone got a clue?
