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
module
- maybe this is no longer a problem?

For patched ebuilds I'd prefer a cygwin-only repo until basic stuff
works, 
no need to stuff another broken arch into the tree. Especially the
insane 
gcc patches and the "new" libc should be kept away from the rest.

wkr,
Patrick
