I asked at Cygwin mailing list, and I'm glad to know that this issue is
fixed in the recent snapshots of Cygwin: just replace your cygwin1.dll
library with a recent snapshot from http://cygwin.com/snapshots/ and
rsync on Windows will be able to open the files where Administrator is
not allowed to.

See the whole thread here:

Great!
