People have reported different results with different builds on the 
backuppc list but I don't remember the versions.  How is this failing? 
There is still a maximum path limit.  Also, how are you using it? 
Running under cygwin sshd has had problems that might also be fixed in 
the latest versions, although it has always worked to issue the command 
from the windows side or to run rsync in daemon mode.
