Cygrunsrv problem starting service created with --user

Howdy. I checked the archives, but didn't see
anything that would shed light on the situation.
I have a fresh Cygwin install, along with Rsync, on a
Win2k box. I would like to set up rsync as a daemon.
The rsync daemon currently works - I can start up
cygwin, type "rsync --daemon --no-detach" and I have a
server running. I can transfer files, no sweat,
config file works great.
I would like to run the rsync daemon as a service,
though not using the Local account. I've successfully
set it up successfully before (using cygrunsrv), but
I'd like to have it run as a certain user. So I used
cygrunsrv to delete it, then typed the following:
cygrunsrv --install rsync_daemon --user
mynetwork\\theusername --desc "rsync daemon from
cygwin" --path /usr/bin/rsync -a "--daemon
It then asks for the password, which I type in twice.
(I tried just using theusername, but it apparently
wanted the domain name for the account).
It appears to work - everything looks good in
Services, but when I try to start I get an error
message that the service could not start, and the
computer did not return an error.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Like I said, if I
add it without the --user it works and starts just
fine, but it won't start when created with --user.
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
