Unexplained error (code 255)

I have been using rsync 2.5.5 on Solaris 8 for quite a while w/ no
problems. This week we upgraded our boxes to Solaris9 and we start
seeing (when -vvv is specified):
wrote 16 bytes read 335214 bytes 31926.67 bytes/sec
total size is 107361593 speedup is 320.26
rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at main.c(1001)
_exit_cleanup(code=255, file=main.c, line=1001): about to call
So it appears to have copied all of the files, but then died
afterwards. I have searched this list's archives and have found this
error pop up quite a few times but have never seen a solution for it. I
have tried the CVS version (as of Dec-04-2002 @ 11:00EST) and am still
seeing the problem.
I am using the following:
Rsync->2.5.6cvs protocol version 26
SSH->Sun_SSH_1.0, protocol versions 1.5/2.0
I am invoking it with: rsync -avz --progress -e ssh host:/path/to/file
I am sure that the problem is Sun's implementation of SSH on Solaris9.
Does anyone have a fix/workaround?
