           Summary: Checksum Error using "ssh key authentication"
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.6
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: cwlin at

Rsync works quite well with password entering in ssh.

However, if the option -e "ssh -i $HOME/.ssh/rsync_rsa" is used,
the error message "Invalid checksum length xxxxx [sender]" will be reported.

The other options used here is "-avvv --delete".
The last few lines of the messages are as follows:

send_file_list done
send_files starting
deleting i386/.listing_old
send_files(1, /cygdrive/d/suse/i386)
send_files(2, /cygdrive/d/suse/i386/.listing)
_exit_cleanup(code=2, file=/home/lapo/packaging/tmp/rsync-2.6.6/io.c,
 about to call exit(2)
