I haven't seen that in my testing.  One easy thing to do is to make sure
that core dumping is enabled and look at a backtrace:

ulimit -c unlimited
/path/to/non-stripped/rsync ...
gdb /path/to/non-stripped/rsync /path/to/core

The backtract (bt) command will tell us where the program is crashing,
and should help me to find the bug.  Note that a non-stripped rsync can
be found in the build dir, and that the core file will probably be in
the destination directory of your pull transfer.
