Here's the script for the cron job:

#! /bin/sh

/usr/local/bin/rsync --verbose  --progress --stats --compress --rsh=/usr/local/bin/ssh \
                     --owner --group --recursive --times --perms --links --delete \
                     --device --hard-links --exclude "*bak" --exclude "*~" \
                     /opt/mydir my_host:/opt

I've just killed the cron job and got this at the end of the output:

Write failed flushing stdout buffer.
write stdout: Broken pipe

Hope this is enough for you.
