I would imagine so.  I can only suggest (1) try a different transport
(perhaps the remote shell you're using is not binary clean, and is thus
eating the characters that would differentiate the files from one
another in the data stream); (2) specify a much higher level of
verbosity (so that rsync tells you what it thinks it is doing at every
step); and/or (3) run rsync using a system-call-tracing program (which
should help you to determine if the system calls are messing up on the
sending or receiving side -- see

My bet is that the problem is that transport is losing data.
