So it's not just me having massive problems with the NT permissions

Cygwin users should see these problems, I guess, because Windows 2000
and XP use NTFS. I can't use rsync anymore, because the permissions
of the destination are all wrong after rsync resets them... Oh what a
I use rsync all the time with Cygwin and don't have problems with
permissions, because I set "nontsec" in the CYGWIN environment variable
as necessary when I want the Windows permissions to be used.
For example, if I'm copying from a remote server to my local server, I'd
% CYGWIN=nontsec rsync -r remote:/path .
If I'm copying to a remote Cygwin box and I want to use the default
permissions on the remote box, I use this:
% rsync -r --rsync-path="CYGWIN=nontsec rsync" ./ remote:/path
The "-perms" (-p) option I don't use.
Another option that can be useful is the --chmod option in rsync. I use
this with --perms when I'm copying from a Cygwin box to a unix box. (You
don't want to use "nontsec" if you use this.)
