[clug] Possible bug with rsync, or me

Hey all,

I'm running several boxes, which are all running rsync 2.6.2 from debian 
unstable. They used to quite happily sync between each other using ssh 
and a command line like:

rsync -rcv --delete $item/ stillhq at dubai.stillhq.com:public_html/$item/

It used to work fine, but now I get:

building file list ... rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4092 
bytes: phase "send_file_entry": Broken pipe
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(839)

Which makes me sad. Googling seems to imply that I might be dealing with 
a bug in rsync, but I am more inclined to believe that my own firmware 
is buggy, and that I need rebooting.

Does anyone have any hints?
