rsync 2.5.5 segmentation fault on Linux x86.

Hi all.

I have a script which I call from cron.  It basically does some stopping
of a few services, rsyncs all files to a remote server and then starts
the services again.  However, rsync segfaults:

  /share/bin/ line 28: 18453 Segmentation fault      rsync -acx --delete ${_backup_dirs} backup-server::backup-client

If I run rsync from the command-line everything works as expected and no
segmentation fault.

I'm really lost where to start debugging this problem, has anybody else
seen this before and would be able to give me a hint?

It's rsync 2.5.5 compiled from source with gcc 2.96 on RedHat Linux 7.2.

Thanks for any pointers,

Erik Enge.
