Hmm, I can't observe this behaviour on my Cygwin box.  I'm running 1.3.22
(as you do in the meantime I hope).  When pressing Ctrl-S in the clients
window, the server is waiting until pressing Ctrl-Q in the clients window
again.  As on Linux.  And the copied files (well, I only testes 5Megs in
size) were copied correctly.  So far I don't see a problem.

This is an open source project.  You're welcome to contribute test cases
for our testsuite.  See
