Greetings, Marc Rechte!

No, you're demanding too much of rsync, which wasn't built with sane
permission system in mind.
Use SSH or direct (cifs) copying. Then the names will match.
Your problem is that you expect Cygwin to be *NIX, but in fact, it isn't. It
is a Windows application, and it follows Windows permission model. (Which,
IMO, is saner, than POSIX one.)
