In case anybody is interested, here's my follow-up to this issue :

Eschewing the 2.6.9 that ships by default on Cygwin, I compiled
Matt's patched rsync 3.0.0 by hand and moved forward with that binary.
After trying a few more scenarios - and hanging each time at the same
phase noted above - i tried the --whole-file switch (copy files whole),
which solved the problem nicely.

Now, of course, i'm not sure /why/ that worked (which is to say that
i'm not sure why the algorithm was failing), but there you go.
