The way rsync is currently written, it opens a directory for every level
in the current path. So, if it has recursed down to sending files from
foo/bar/baz/, rsync has 3 directories open. That might be the source of
the problem if you have a low file-handle limit and a deep directory
structure. Try running like "ulimit -n" to see how many open file
descriptors are allowed.
Note that the directory-recursion code for 2.6.4 release has been
changed to not keep the directory handle open when processing a
directory's subdirs. (This will be new for 2.6.4pre3.)
