"--times" does not transfer full modification time

I use:
- cygwin 1.5.25-cr-0x5f1 with
- rsync version 3.0.4 (protocol version 30)
- under Windows XP Home SP3
- on a NTFS formatted drive

with the following command line options:

rsync.exe --recursive --times --delete --checksum --progress --stats --verbose "/cygdrive/c/_test/1/" "/cygdrive/c/_test/2"

Timestamps on NTFS formatted drives include milliseconds, but rsync does not preserve the milliseconds.

Thus, the milliseconds for files on the receiving side are all set to zero.
