The current (1.7.x) cygwin ssh/rsync are OK, but there is a long history 
of earlier versions randomly hanging when rsync was running under sshd 
(i.e. started remotely).  It always worked with rsync configured as a 
standalone daemon or when executed from the windows side using ssh to a 
unix/linux target.

This used to be a problem when using backuppc to back up windows files 
with rsync.
