[Dirvish] Backing up Windows: Currently broken (current cwRsync &

I recently set up a friend with dirvish (on Ubuntu 6.06 Desktop 64bit).
Backing up his laptop (OSX 10.4.9) worked like a charm.
His wife's laptop (Windows XP Pro) doesn't do the job, neither with
the rsync from cwRsync nor with the current Cygwin version (2.6
series) - it starts the transfer as expected but stalls at always
around 3MB. It's not generally the exact same amount (or even
generally the same file), but it's always in the same region.
A quick google turned up some timing problems on Windows that have
ostensibly been fixed in late 2.5 versions; nothing else that seemed
I've suppressed the -x option already as that is reported to cause
weirdness on Windows.
Any more ideas or similar observations?
I distinctly remember dirvish working fine with Windows2k boxen using
Cygwin, I'd /really/ love to get there again.
Repent! Quit your job! SLACK OFF!
