I've noticed that
rsync -e ssh network:some
would tend to leave cores behind on the distand machine.
Turns out rsync was trying to log a final error message... which could
not get written to stderr... which got detected by rwrite... which called
exit_cleanup... which in turn tried to write to stderr....... until all
stack got eaten up.
This patch fixes the infinite recursion.
