OK, I noticed that. Now it brings me a problem using rsync on cygwin.

On cygwin:
$ cat /etc/rsyncd.conf
         path = /cygdrive/c/tmp
         comment = zone de test
         fake super = yes
         read only = no

On the Linux box:
# ls -l /home/tunix/
drwxr-xr-x  3 tunix root                     4096  9 mars  12:23 resto_win
-rw-rw-r--+ 1 tunix utilisateurs_du_domaine 82882  9 mars  10:56 tmp.ps

#  rsync -avz --acls --delete /home rsync://
# rsync -avz --acls --delete rsync:// resto_win/
# ls -l /home/tunix/resto_win/tunix/
drwx------ 2 1050005 1049089  4096  9 mars  12:14 resto_win
-rw------- 1 1050005 1049089 82882  9 mars  10:56 tmp.ps

You will notice that owner, group and ACLs  are *not* restored properly

Am I demanding too much to cygwin ?

Thanks for your time.
