           Summary: Bad behavior when there are IO errors on reading.
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.7
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: jhlj at

When reading a file with a bad block, rsync 2.6.7 goes in to a infinte loop,
rereading the bad block.

rsync 2.6.6 just fil in zeros. Which is worse! Bad data and no indication.

The error is also i rsync 2.5.7 from RHEL 3.

There are no error message in either case.

The minimum requerement is an error message, and an error exit code.
The best solution, would be to be able to select to skip changes from files
readerrors, and just continue with other files.
