cygwin, Rsync and 8-bit chars (SJIS) (and managed mounts)

I've tried this out and it seems to work but as Igor pointed out, I can only
use this on empty directories.

The trouble is I have existing directories that need to be backed up via
rsync and I can't change their paths (there are many apps using them in
their current locations).

Any trick to get around this "error"?  (I presume once -o managed is fully
debugged this limitation will be removed anyway, or overridable by an option
at least?)
