It  didn't fix it for us. We sync Win9x clients to a Win2k server running
rsync as service.

Hangs and connection reset by peer happened almost daily. Adding a -B 16384
seemed to help, but we still get the error.

I lack the knowledge to debug this problem by myself, but I if somebody
wants to run some tests or try a patch with our setup, I'll be very happy to
