What I want is the backtrace when the rsync that is failing dies so we
can (hopefully) figure out why it is dying.  In the above command the
client should be the sender, so it appears to be receiving side that is
dying.  Unfortunately that means that there are two processes to choose
from (the two higher-numbered ones).  The best thing to do would be to
attach a debugger to both of them (each in a separate window).  Set a
break-point at _exit_cleanup (I forgot that the function is really named
with a leading underscore because of some macro shenanigans), and then
tell it to "c"ontinue.  You'll be able to get a backtrace of what each
program was doing when it either died from a signal or chose to exit.
You can look around a bit too (e.g. move "up", "l"ook around, and
"p"rint some variables).
