I haven't seen that symptom, but there's a very serious bug in rsync 2.5.2
that could conceivably be causing that. I suggest using version 2.5.3pre1
from the "preview" directory in the rsync sources area at rsync.samba.org.
It is possible that Debian has already put out their own 2.5.2 that has the
very bad bug solved though, I'm not sure.
