I'm trying to transfer multiple selected filed using rsync client and
daemon. Currently, this only works when trying to transfer two different
files, but as soon as I add a third file, I get the error:

rsync: read error: Connection reset by peer
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(162)

The command "rsync -vz --delete -stats
user at host::'module/directory/file1 module/directory/file2'" works.

"rsync -vz --delete -stats user at host::'module/directory/file1
module/directory/file2 module/directory/file3'" does not.

I'm running rsync 2.5.5 on the client and server. Server is running on
