I noticed something really similar.
Using rsync daemon, transferring a bunch of movie files.
now and then a file fails with this error.
Rsync is the same version on both sides, 2.6.8, from
command line parameters:

--exclude "/*/*.zip"
rsync://syncuser@$HOST:/content/ /home/www/${HOST}.com/

ERROR: marie/movies/marie_320.mpg failed verification -- update retained.

The resulting files' checksums are different. Sizes are the same.
