Just to let people know.
There are several things which I discovered but will not comment on
( for example compiling with debug options on--BTW you have to
manually modify Makefiles to turn on debugging. It seems there is
no option for it in configure-- and using gdb causes rsync to
terminate prematurely ). There just a mishmash of facts that are hard
to keep track of.

I got exclude to work. When I exclude /dev rsync does not hang, when
I do not exclude /dev rsync hangs.
