I ran an rsync into a file system that filled up. I got no error message
out of rsync - it just stopped and exited sliently. I stuck an fprintf
into the receiving code and verified that the proper error was being
generated - it just never gets printed by the rsync sending process.
I submitted a bug report about it; but, I can't believe that other
people haven't had this bite them.
Also, shouldn't rsync continue with the other files that *do* fit into
the destination, rather than dying on the first one that doesn't fit?
Perhaps we need an --ignore-errors-even-further option...
