Cygwin rsync slow with noacl in fstab [GishPuppy]




I have a directory tree on my FreeNAS system that I back up to my work PC remotely using rsync. As is commonly known, cygwin rsync creates all kinds of weird permissions issues when syncing files between POSIX systems and Windows (even when using --no-A and --chmod=ugo=rwX). To solve this issue I edited the cygwin fstab file to contain the noacl directive. The problem is that with noacl in the fstab, rsync takes 231 seconds to process the directory tree with 0 file changes in comparison to 11 seconds without noacl. I tried --no-c and there was no speedup. 

The actual rsync command in question is:

rsync --stats -rltDHzvu --no-c --compress-level=6 "192.168.1.2::foo/bar/" "/cygdrive/Y/foo/bar/"

The output of Measure-Command in Windows Powershell is below.

Any ideas appreciated.
