exit status 12 with large files

I use rsync version 2.4.6, protocol version 24 on a RH7.2 machine. The
purpose is mirroring a Red Hat repository.

All works fine, *except* for really big files. ISO images (~650MB) are a
good example. Whenever I don't exclude *.iso, I get the following:

receiving file list ... done
sending sums for 1408
unexpected EOF in read_timeout

The exit status retuned is 12. Unfortunately I can't find an explanation
of the exit status codes in the manual/info pages.

The only reference I've found to this is:
...which seems to have been left unresolved.

Any suggestions?
