So you're running rsync from the Linux source side. Hmm, that's a problem
for debugging. Can you turn this around and run rsync from the Cygwin
target side? Does the same problem occur? I expect it will.

It should definitely not happen with files ending in .exe. A couple
- What kind of binaries are that? Windows binaries?
Can you please run the file(1) command on them?
- Can you please run `strace -o rsync.log rsync ...' from the Cygwin
side with just 2 or 3 selected binaries to copy, and send the strace?
- Would it be possible for you to send these two or three binaries to me
via private email? Please don't do it now, it's just a question.
Especially, please check that neither you nor I will have licensing

No. It's a heuristic in the rename(2) API, not an overly intelligent,
apparently. Looks like it needs to be tweaked some more...
