I completly agree with you, but i have a big question :

Til i have this hang problem, i have set dozens of windows servers with 
both rsync and cygwin, and i never get this problem ... So i think there is 
something external (windows, network, etc.) that perharps influence cygwin 
and indirectly cause this hang problem ...

I think i take a look at interix
