Yes, that is what I was referring to.

> then its not a performance issue of 3.1.0 but the issue is much older, see https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10322 and http://git.samba.org/rsync.git/?p=rsync.git&a=search&h=HEAD&st=commit&s=socketpair

All I did was: grabbed the 3.0.9 source package from the cygwin
mirror. Build it and ran "cygport test" and all test succeeded (some
were skipped). After that I updated that cygport file, downloaded and
build 3.1.0 and ran "cygport test". Some test failed. With 3.1.1pre1,
pre2 and 3.1.1 release it worked again.

So for me there was a cygwin related bug in 3.1.0 and was fixed in
3.1.1, just like it says in NEWS.

I don't know. Just used the vanilla build options. So apparently the
developers of rsync disabled xattr on cygwin.
