Does rdiff-backup need the use compatible timestamps option on the -l? Or at
least override-chars? Is it possible that the other two options have figured
it out but the cygwin port hasn't caught on when you try for -l ? Can you
upgrade to the development version?

The other option would be can you use ssh to loop back on yourself with an
rdiff-backup --server not as an answer but as a work around?

Non rdiff-backup note: If you can SSH you can port forward and open RDP on
the machine with SSH tunneling (the -L command) if you prefer, then you can
use the native port all you like.
