Not really.  The file was created using the metadata of the
source so when it comes time to fix the metadata after the
transfer there is no need to change it.  If on the other
hand only the metadata had changed it wouldn't be uptodate.

-vv is for debugging.  Debugging messages are often cryptic
and may sometimes require reading of the source code to make
any sense.

Without knowing about the tree being scanned i can make no
comment.  There is one other bit of data the server would be
sending to the client that i forgot to mention and that is
all those diagnostic messages you asked for.

You have run out of a system resource on the server.  I'd
suggest you look in the system logs.
