It did once I moved the calls to the file-deletion passes into the generator (so
that things were setup properly for the new keep-alive packet to be used).

It might have.  I am now theorizing that the original bug's timeout could have
occurred during the directory-time-touching loop at the end of the generator's
run.  If so, the latest CVS code now handles this for a protocol-29 transfer.

On this assumption, I'm closing this bug.  Please reopen it if there is still a
problem with 2.6.4 (you can try out the latest "nightly" tar file to test it now).

> Also - is there a default for timeout/2 if no --timeout value has been given?

If no --timeout has been given, no keep-alive packets are currently sent.
