I am running jungledisk and this is my script:

### Backs up office data to Jungledisk using rsync
## Start in rc.local or here
mount /mnt/s3
echo "`date +"%F %R"`: Start backup-jd" >> $LOGFILE
rsync -r --inplace --size-only --bwlimit=50 /home/shares/allusers/127 /mnt/s3
echo "`date +"%F %R"`: Finish backup-jd" >> $LOGFILE
umount /mnt/s3

Everytime i run i get this error, it driving me nuts! any ideas would be appreciated.
rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 32768 bytes [sender]: Broken pipe (32)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (30 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(454) [sender=2.6.9]
