Karl, you may want to try a later version of Unison. 2.9.1 is pretty
old now, and although I don't know about that version specifically, I
know that there have been "hanging" bugs in other versions.
A Cygwin version of Unison 2.10.2 has just been released; you should be
able to find it in the Cygwin setup utility. However, the archive
format has changed, so you will have to be using version 2.10.x (I
believe) on both hosts or Unison will complain. It will also have to
resync its archive lists.
