Yes James,

But this is NOT about "what used to work", it is about what is NOT working NOW
on this specific machine ...

It is also not relevant (to a large extent) that rsync is working on the other
W10 boxes you own ...

The main issue (to us) here is: Is it Cygwin that is causing the problem? Said
differently, if it is not Cygwin, than we cannot help you.

In that case, you will have to rely on your own capabilities (and the support,
if any, given by Microsoft).

So, the reason I am asking to reduce your PATH definition is to exclude Cygwin
as the cause of your recent problem on this specific box.

Excluding, excluding ... that is the main theme here!
