Whatever you changed fixed the hanging for my original command.
However, I am still getting hanging with the command below, which is a
modified version of the command I use via rsnapshot to back up my
computer.  Here an external hard disk with a relatively slow USB 1
connection is mounted at /mnt/external-disk , and the current
directory is /mnt/external-disk/rsync-test .

--delete-excluded --relative --progress --filter=P_/home/
--filter=P_/mnt/Matt-common/ --exclude=media/external-disk/snapshots
/home/matt/rsync/ dest/ 2>&1 | tee rsync-incremental.log

The new log and straces are at:
