Try invoking rsync from inside a cygwin shell, such as bash, rather than
from the Windows command line, to see if that helps. Also, what does
c:\> bash -c "echo $PATH"
output, both when the Windows Path had quotes and when it does not? If
cygwin is not properly converting the Windows Path into a valid PATH that
other cygwin programs can understand, that might explain why rxvt is
unable to find ssh.
