    Yes, both client and server are clean...but i think i know what the problem is now. Server is using an ext3 fs, the client ext2 -- and trying to rsync a >2gb file over to the client B).
    i'll compile in ext3 support and try again. Thanks!

I've gotten similar errors when I had a corrupt filesystem on the server
side. Have you fsck'ed both boxes?
