RSYNC File Has Vanished

I am attempting to RSYNC files from a Linux box which has a mounted path to a NetWare 6.5 server.  I am using the Novell Client for Linux (beta).  I am sure this is probably a Novell issue, and there won't be much help on this mailing list, but perhaps someone could explain what the underlying issue might be.  I could use this information on my bug report to Novell to help them along.

When I try to sync a mounted Novell path (novfs kernel module via NCP) I get the message "file has vanished" for every file in the path.  RSYNC returns this error after the file list is built.  I can cd into this path, ls to my hearts content, and cp and mv files to and from it.  

What could be a cause of this error?  I have verified my time is in sync with the server.   Thanks for any information anyone can provide.  (RSYNC Version 2.6.5 SuSE 9.3 Pro Kernel 2.6.9).
