Though it should be noted that with cygwin-1.5, rsync to a cygwin machine
running sshd will hang on transferring large directories. For example,
(from some directory not in /usr):
rsync -va localhost:/usr/ usr.copy
will probably show the problem. See this thread for more details:
But since the problem was rooted in the pipe implementation for 1.5, it is
pretty likely that it is already fixed in cygwin-1.7. In fact, the above
test now works for me on a WinXP machine running sshd on cygwin-1.7.
Unfortunately, I'm not having much success in getting the cygwin-1.7 sshd
to work on Vista yet...
