That's indicates that something in the protocol got corrupted.  You
might try upgrading to 2.6.9.  If you're using -z (--compress), try
leaving that option off and see if the error goes away.  If none of
that helps, you may need to check if your remote-shell connection is
transmitting the bytes accurately.  There's a program in the support
directory of the rsync source named savetransfer that can be used to
save a copy of the data that is being sent and the data that is being
received, allowing you to compare it for corruptions.
