A local-to-local transfer treats the sending side as the client, so
that's the only side that lets output messages.  My guess is that the
error message from the receiver didn't make it through the generator to
the sender before the sender noticed that the receiver closed down (via
a write-error on the pipe).  It may be possible to get the client sender
to read all the data on the incoming pipe/socket (discarding everything
but errors) when it abnormally terminates.
