Ok, thanks. I'd been using the RPM version that ships w. RH, and later
and RPM built from the source RPM for 2.5.6. I've now downloaded the
source from the rsync site, configured, make and make install.

Tried to enable -vvv but this makes rsync hang on the same file each

make_file(4,2001_12_Villa_OpNed/08_Projekt/10 Diverse/MDF_model.psd)

This is a 9 meg file. Before that, lots of make_file requests have
succeeded. When running with -vvv I noticed that there were only 2 rsync
processes, whereas without -vvv there are 3. Using strace on the two
processes (running -vvv) shows that they're both experiencing timeouts,
select(2, NULL, [1], NULL, {60, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)

Does this ring a bell to anyone?

Thanks in advance,
