Problems with rsync 2.5.1pre1 and hardlinks

Do you see any error messages in the log file on the server?

Running out of memory may be the problem.  As a temporary workaround
perhaps you can create an additional swap file (rather than partition)
on the backup server?

The rsync hlink code seems to use a bit more memory than is really
necessary.  Perhaps we can improve it...
