That's absolutely not the problem from my point of view :-)

The problem here is that Cygwin is incapable of parsing all filenames that
are valid in Linux. RSYNC_EXCLUDE is the "easy" way out. Restricting filenames
would work too.
The only ebuild I can remember that had this problem was a CFEngine
- maybe this is no longer a problem?
For patched ebuilds I'd prefer a cygwin-only repo until basic stuff
no need to stuff another broken arch into the tree. Especially the
gcc patches and the "new" libc should be kept away from the rest.
Stand still, and let the rest of the universe move
