           Summary: cygwin socketpair "The parameter is incorrect"
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.8
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: roland at rschulz.eu

The usage of socketpair in fd_pair on cygwin can cause the error "The parameter
is incorrect" when trying to use a different rsh. This has been reported before
at http://lists.samba.org/archive/rsync/2002-October/003820.html

Usage of pipe instead of socketpair fixes this. I suggest to use pipe instead
of socketpair by default for cygwin.
