The problem could be that the current bandwidth-limiting algorithm
doesn't prevent rsync from issuing two big writes in rapid succession,
which seems to be what triggers the hang in Cygwin.  Simply moving the
sleep_for_bwlimit call in writefd_unbuffered in io.c from after the
actual write to before it may make --bwlimit more effective at working
around the hang.
