The best thing you can do is to run a version with debug symbols intact: rsync
builds with debug symbols by default, but strips them from the installed
version, so either run a non-stripped binary from an rsync build dir, or make
sure that the stripped version that is running is based on the non-stripped
version (so that it differs only in the stripped symbols).  Then, when the
processes hang, attach gdb to each process using a non-stripped rsync binary as
the first arg and the process number as the second arg.  You'll then be able to
run "bt" (backtrace) and see exactly where rsync is in the code.  You can look
around, printing out any variables via the "p" command, etc.
