Made a bit of progress. When I comment out the lines uid = 0 and gid =
0 from my /etc/rsyncd.conf v3.1.1. seems to work again, although I
haven't tried on our production server yet. I rather wait with that
until the weekend when there is not much to backup. I have not found
out why this behavior has changed since v3.0.9.

Another thing that surprises me is that the setuid() fails with an
errno 5, which is EIO. That error is not mentioned on this man page What do you think? Is this setuid()
error a cygwin specific problem or should I ask upstream?
