Please notice that windows FS often need an "expanded window" as its time
granularity is not very high.
Many users report --modify-window=2 useful on FAT but some also on NTFS.
Please try this and see if it solves something.
Moreover: what rsh are you using, not the wnidows' default rsh, is it?
It should even work, so I doubt it, but...
try with ssh maybe, just to compare.
