I've been using rsync for some time now (in "local" mode) on a Win2K box.  I
haven't been paying close attention, but I think it worked fine for a while,
then I started to get the same kinds of hangup.  If someone can offer advice
on how to set debugging options, I can also produce some evidence.  (BTW,
I'm running "version 2.5.5  protocol version 26".)

Thanks in advance for any good words,
