rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c

I am using rsync to backup a machine with a large number of files, and I
am getting this error.

It would be helpful to know which files this is occuring with, to diagnose
the problem.

Is there a configuration option to rsync (that I may have missed) that
will reveal this info.

Alternatively, is there a source code patch that I could apply to rsync
in order to find out?

Thanks for any help
