I've been using rsync installed via cygwin on two Windows 7 PCs to sync my music and picture collection, but eventually it always stops transferring after some time. I've googled and it seems that people experience it over ssh as well, but I'm not using ssh. I've updated cygwin a couple times and it doesn't seem to fix the problem.

I guess there is no fix for this? It's a pretty annoying bug! must I run -e rsh or something to get it to work? The command I'm using is:

rsync --daemon rsync -av --delete valentine::music .

That's all.
