I sent a message to this list just a few hours after your original
request responding to a message with an almost identical subject to
yours.  It essentially told you that the Issues and Debugging page is
your best resource for figuring out how to trouble-shoot a remote rsync
failure.  One of the first suggestions on that page is to upgrade rsync
(on both ends!) to 2.6.6 for better error reporting of remote problems.
Upgrading will also improve the timeout handling (which may be why the
remote rsync is going away).  You might also try increasing the timeout
