Rsync stops randomly (using vanished files bash script)

I don't think this is possible. Pretty much no services except ssh are 
running on the machine that I'm running the rsync client on. The 
partition I'm transferring the files to hast 400GB of space left and 3.7 
GB of my 4GB memory are still free...
Any other suggestions?

Do you think it could be possible that the machine which I'm fetching 
the data from run out of ram? I think the the client should have thrown 
some error message at least.
