I've determined that the problem is more fundamental... Even without
the -backup behavior the cygwin rsyncd causes many many files to be
copied even whn they have not been modified.
I thought perhaps it was because Win98 would not properly preserve
ownership or permissions, so I removed those options (stopped using -a)
and specified only recursion, time stamp, and links. I also believe that
directories are not preserved in a case sensitive way (two dirs differing
only by case cause problems for cygwin), but that is not the issue either...
Basically I think rsync under cygwin is just behaving badly.
