I left out a few details that might help:
1. The hung processes come in 2's. So it's either 2 or 4 or 6, etc. I read
somewhere about rsync using one process for sending and a second process for
receiving, so perhaps that why the hangs come in pairs.
2. I tried attaching to the processes with strace, but received no output at
all. It might be that I didn't know what I was doing. I used this
invocation on each one:
strace -p 123 (where 123 is the process id)
