This means the socket closed.  Does rsync even get started on the remote
system?  That would be the first thing to investigate.  If it is getting
run, does the remote process crash or die?  If you are connecting with a
daemon process, you can look at the logs to figure that out.  If you're
using the CVS version of rsync, you can use the new --log-file option on
the remote rsync to ask it to log what is going on (it requires using the
--rsync-path option, as mentioned in the latest man page).  Or, you can
enable system-call tracing, as detailed on the Issues and Debugging
webpage of the rsync website.
