I'm not an rsync guru, but it sounds like your dialup connection is 
getting dropped.  You might have your dialup settings to disconnect 
after some time of inactivity. I found that M$ doesn't check ALL 
traffic, just IE,email and ???.  My ftp utility was giving me the same 
sort of error till I turned off that setting.
