The CVS version is more stable than 2.6.4 because it's almost entirely
composed of bug fixes (I'm working toward a bug-fix release in the not-
too-distant future).  I wouldn't recommend 2.5.7 -- too many bug fixes
have gone into rsync since then, so I personally wouldn't use anything
older than 2.6.3 (which is about 7 months old now).   I use the latest
CVS version on all my systems (which identifies itself as "2.6.5cvs").

FYI, the latest "nightly" tar file now has all CVS bug fixes in it, so
if you want an easier way to fetch the latest and greatest,  you won't
need to apply any patches to that.
