rcp, rsh don't work on Vista?

I'm setting up my usual environment on Vista (Ultimate) and I found that the 
Windows versions of rcp and rsh appear not to be distributed with Vista. So I 
turned to the Cygwin versions and found they don't seem to run - although all 
the other Cygwin ports I've used seem to work fine.

I get: rcp.exe (2140): *** system shared memory version mismatch detected - 
0x2D1E009C/0x75BE0081. This problem is probably due to using incompatible 
versions of the cygwin DLL. ...

There are no other versions of the cygwin DLL on my system...

Please advise; rcp is critical to several scripts I use on a daily basis...
