Something is interfering with the connection between the rsync client
and the DeltaCopy-managed daemon to which it is pushing files, even
though the daemon is on localhost.  Here are some things you could try
to get more information about what is causing the problem:

(1) Run rsync at -vvv verbosity level.
(2) Check the daemon's log file for any relevant messages.
(3) Run the rsync client directly at the command line instead of
through DeltaCopy.  Perhaps strace rsync to see exactly what happens
before the failure.
