This could be some sort of NFS bug, but you might want to try the latest
version of rsync (2.5.5) to see if it solves the problem.  It's pretty
easy to recompile it for potato; install libpopt-dev, and dpkg-source -x
the sources, then cd rsync-2.5.5 && fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc.

If you don't feel like doing that, I've put up rsync 2.5.5 compiled for
potato on i386 here:
