The "--blocking-io" option fixed the problem. Thanks to jw for the solution.
Thanks also to Wayne Davison for his response.

This is probably a [non]blocking io problem. Rsync has
two options for that. Try them.
--blocking-io use blocking IO for the remote shell
--no-blocking-io turn off --blocking-io
You also failed to say what platform and rsync version.
