I had not used tools/rsync-recommended -- I just coped the rsync command

However, to get this I had to get the latest version of the tools (out of
and after changing my path to use it I get the dreaded "You have multiple
copies of cygwin1.dll on your system" error, even though I have set my path
so that I have only one copy of cygwin1.dll in my path (as far as I can see):
$ type -a cygwin1.dll
cygwin1.dll is /cygdrive/c/R/tools/cygwin1.dll
c:\R\tools\ls.exe: *** fhandler size version mismatch detected - 0x70/0x6C.
You have multiple copies of cygwin1.dll on your system.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version. The most recent version *should*
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution.
# this is the path I'm had for the commands above -- this command run with
a different PATH so that it can run
$ echo $RPATH | tr ':' '\012'
/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio/VC98/Bin
/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio/Common/MSDev98/Bin
/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Html Help Workshop
(I'm running under Windows 2000).
Any suggestions on how to get things working again are much appreciated.
