[Dirvish] Question regarding usage of dirvish with win client and linux server

I've used dirvish for some time now on several machines but had a
problem recently in the following setup:
Linux machine (Ubuntu 8.04.4) is the dirvish server. Filesystem where
the data is stored is xfs (on an lvm). Clients are some linux machines
and some windows machines with cwrsync (1.7 IIRC, can verify if needed).
The problem presented itself like this: when dirvish ran, it didn't
hardlink the files from the windows machines but rather made new files
every time (filling the harddrive pretty fast). I verified that the
files weren't hardlinking with stat.
The linux machines work fine (hardlinking-wise).
I made some tests back then (was ~4 months ago) and concluded back then
that rsync thinks some attributes changed on the client side and hence
hardlinking wasn't possible.
Now I've looked at the dirvish docs again and found the win guide and
that got me thinking.
Do any of you have any idea what might be happening there? The setup is
quite ugly now, I use dirvish for the linux machines and made some
scripts myself where I save the win machines with a diff dir.
Thanks a lot in advance,
Mit freundlichem Gruss
