Well what I did after my last post was recompiling rsync with different optimisation options,
and also with all the optimisations disabled (-O0).
the directory tree that is being synchronised is a so-called gentoo linux's 'portage', consisting
of lots of directories (~14k) and files (~68k), most of which are pretty small (<5k)

whats further interesting, that after todays update of the tree from the upstream server,
all of the sudden i can not reproduce described behaviour anymore...

is it possible that it was something in the tree causing rsync to act so weird ?
