So once Cygwin learns how to speak UTF-8, I will finally be able to

It works, but again, only locally.
Is there a way to tell these variables to a cygwin service (i.e., rsyncd
started with cygrunsrv?).
I tried to set them as a global variable (System -> Advanced ->
Environment variables), started new console, restarted rsyncd service
with cygrunsrv, but it doesn't have any effect on rsyncd service - files
with UTF-8 characters still fail to transfer (file has vanished).
This time, I used rsync 3.0.0 binary on a Linux server, so it's not a
problem with an old protocol etc.
Probably the whole Windows machine needs to be restarted if we add new
Even if the service is restarted, it doesn't see new variables. So all
services depend on some other process which is already running, it seems.
