cygwin rsync windows to windows ACL problem

I am having problems using rsync on cygwin to properly copy the
ownership of files from windows to windows.
I am running: rsync -avPA //src_addr/some/path /local/dst/path/

Based on:

ENV: CYGWIN=ntsec tty
I am running this on Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 (a DC), the SRC is
a Windows XP SP2 domain member.
I have tried patching the cygwin rsync source to enable ACL support,
and had this confirmed by rsync --version
This didn't work so I got rsync-acl-2.6.9.tar.bz2 from:
and configured with --enable-acl-support
This still does not work.  Is what I am trying to do not possible,
or am I just doing something wrong?

Thanks for any input.
