I copying files from a linux station to a win32 - cygwin 1.7 station
using the current openssh server from cygwin
rsync -rpogv . -e "ssh" host:/
This works, except that for some binaries ( I could not determine any
pattern or rule ) ending with .exe .src or .sys , cygwin adds .exe
extensions ( yielding files like .sys.exe ).
Is this normal behavior ? If yes, can it be disabled ?
( Note : that if this cannot be enabled, I think it renders rsync -
cygwin more or less useless for a couple of mirroring tasks )
Thanks for your ideas
