rsync 2.6.2 hang (was rsync 2.6.2 crash)

OK, I set up a new PC with a fresh XP load to be my rsync server. Rsync by itself seems
to work fine (thank God. I'm going nuts.)

I am still having problems when I throw ssh into the mix. At least now, things don't 
crash, but they do hang.  The file list gets build, the transfer starts and it gets through 
maybe a few hundred files, but then everything stops. All the processes are still there,
but all logging stops and CPU utilization by the rsync and ssh processes go to zero. 

Any thoughts?

   >  I switched both ends back to 2.6.2 and started rsync in daemon mode by hand (no ssh). The sync is still in progress, but it looks like it is working. There were three small problems, however:
