Actually, I screwed up. The remote side had quite an old version of rsync.
Upgrading to 2.4.6 fixed the protocol problems but hasn't fixed the hang

It's really strange because it hangs in the same place every time, and
it's the only instance of rsync from the 30 or so in my shell script that
cause a problem, with other instances transferring much more data. Other
instances are also on the same server that work fine.

I was almost thinking it was getting stuck on a socket or symlink or
something. While there aren't any fifos in that directory, there are about
50 symlinks..

They're all Linux boxes with OpenSSH_2.3.0p1 as the transport on both
sides, using ssh1. I just tried the patch and it hangs in the same place
as 2.4.6 stock and 2.4.7p1.
