tar: You must specify one of the '-Acdtrux', '--delete' or '--test-label' options

In the meantime you could just have installed 3.0.2 which is equivalent
to the latest snapshot.

This doesn't make sense.  Are you copying rsync into a local dir
with the extracted cygwin?  Inside another Cygwin session?
Don't do that, you're bound to get into trouble.

Works fine for me

I mainly asked to try the latest snapshot to see the strace, because it
doesn't makes sense to inspect the strace of an old version.  Please
attach the strace to your reply.
