I am using rsync on a Linux box, connecting to a Cygwin SSH server which
has Rsync installed, and  pulling some files to the Linux box. The
transfer locks up. The rsync process on the Windows box hangs. A single
hidden file in progress exists. It is an excel file, with 0 bytes.

It locks up on this file consistently. I can open it, read it, delete
it, using Cygwin tools, on Windows. It is an Excel file. I have no idea
what rsync is doing to hang.

Will be attaching gdb in a minute.
