I have done the following:

- Added -modify-window=10 (also tried 2) to both the client and server process.
- Limited attributes to only time (no owner, group, etc.)
- run the cygwin daemon with --no-detach

I also found all instances of directories who's names differed only by
case and removed them.

Still... rsync copies files for no apparent reason.  I cannot understand it.
Some of the files seem to appear repeatedly, but I believe some are new each 

Here is the tail of an example output, the second time in a row that it ran:

  wrote 63568758 bytes  read 100388 bytes  67769.18 bytes/sec
  total size is 6100714293  speedup is 95.82
  rsync error: partial transfer (code 23) at main.c(576)

I don't know if the error holds a clue.  It seemed to complete ok.

Again, I'm using the latest rsync, copying from Solaris to Win98se with
the latest cygwin.

Any ideas?
