"Bad address" error

I'm getting a "bad address" error which is causing my rsync process to
bomb out.

I'm running RsyncX 2.1, in daemon mode on the source machine, with a
script to pull the information to the backup server.  Both servers are
Xserves running OS X Server 10.2.8.  Rsync target is on an Xserve RAID. 
The RAID has 350GB free, so I'm not running into a disk full situation.

My command looks like:

/usr/local/bin/rsync -a --ignore-errors
--password-file=/etc/rsync/secure.txt --stats --eahfs --backup
--delete --bwlimit=2000 -z rsync at

The error that causes the process to stop, along with the rsync stop
message, is:

Folder" failed: No such file or directory
write failed on
Folder": Bad address
rsync error: error in file IO (code 11) at receiver.c(324)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (761151 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(189)

Any help is greatly appreciated.
