I forgot to say:
You must specify *both* the executable file name and the pid. Otherwise, you
don't see function names, only raw addresses.

gdb rsync.exe <pid>

Also, try gdb first. On all but WinXP (and possibly 2k, I don't know),
detaching from a process kills it. So you only get a chance to try one of
these methods.

Make that "thread 1", then "bt".
