found that rsync 2.50 packaged as openPKG   rsync-2.5.0-1.0.1.src.rpm
had this problem when compiled with redhat gcc 2.96

rsync seems to work fine copying from the running system.   Files match as
far as a random check.      I've been hoping to simplify life by rsyncing
from the running system to have a bootable backup.    Most conversations on
the list suggest this is easy, and I've gotten it to happen, and now I've
forgotten to do some detail....   ( /etc/fstab is corrected to refer to the
device name of the drive that is booted by grub)

here is my output and rsync script:

from dmesg:
