rsync process never finishes

Tue Sep 3 23:54:00 EST 2002

Thanks for the suggestion.
Removing the -vv didn't help but I was able to narrow the problem down to
one particularly large directory.
rsync'ing individual subdirectories is working but is very cumbersome.
Is there a consensus on what the best way to deal with this?
I don't think memory usage is an issue, the server has 6 Gigs of ram and
only 350 megs in use durring the process.

 Try taking out the -vv options
