That message is not coming from anywhere in rsync. This
must be coming from a library. I notice a "^M" on the end
of it. Either the other end is windows or this message has
been cooked (stty).
I cannot say what resource is temporarily unavailable. It
might have run out of pids or, more likely, memory. In
either case if fork failed rsync will quickly exit freeing
up resources. If you feel daring you could run a fork bomb
to confirm that it is fork hitting a limit.
