------- Comment #12 from tony3 at  2008-10-02 12:46 CST -------
The --bwlimit work-around did not fix the problem for me. Instead, I found this

which described running rsync on the client against a TCP daemon service
(rather than over ssh) which solved the problem for me. After setting up an
rsyncd.conf file and installing the rsyncd daemon as a service on the remote

cygrunsrv --install "rsyncd" --path /usr/bin/rsync --args "--daemon
  --desc "Starts a rsync daemon for accepting incoming rsync connections"
  --disp "Rsync Daemon" --type auto

it worked without a hitch and is no longer stalling on large files.
