xattr version generates 'wrong write used in receiver'

Applying the xattr and acl patch to 2.6.9, running ./prepare-source  
and config with
    ./configure --enable-xattr-support
results in a version which fails to transfer with the error msg  
'wrong write used in receiver' and complaints about protocol  
mismatch. I see there's a patch for a similar problem when  
SUPPORT_ACLS is defined; anybody done one for --xattrs? No, I'm not  
using --acls. Using i386 up-to-date OSX on both sides.
