I think something else may be the problem. How does rsync handle the
Windows Shortcuts? And how does it handle the tmp files with weird
filename (MS Word tmp files are named like ~$adfuoiuwer.tmp, e.g.)?

When I got rid of the shortcuts on a user's desktop and all MS Word tmp
files in her folders, rsync began to work.

Please see my other post (Re: permissions problem cygwin<-->Linux) about
what steps I took and rsync began to work.
