Issue with rsync 2.6.2 on SCO OpenServer 5.x

Strange error whilst trying to copy a large data-set across a LAN.

	Invalid file index 522565453 (count=10365)
	rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at sender.c(151)

This error occurs whenever I try to rsync this data structure.

Any ideas on what I could do to stop this?  The exact same binary is
used on both machines.



Command line used:

FLAGS="-vac --copy-links --copy-unsafe-links --force --stats"
/usr/bin/rsync ${FLAGS} /pme/std/data/ vdrp:/pme/std/data/
