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

Nope, none - the server thinks it has done all transfers (despite having
its childs still clinging to some 200MB mem...) successfully.

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

I "instructed" the decision makers of the afflicted organisation to buy
some extra 512MB so that both nodes have 1GB, I hope that it'll suffice.

I'll inform you about the results, maybe that will give some hints where
to look for excess memory usage on the hlink handling of rsync.
