Bugs in compression algorithms tend to be very sensitive to the nature
of the data being compressed.  It's possible that the files you have
been copying recently contain data sequences that trigger the bug in
the WAS while files you copied previously did not.

In any event, I recommend that you leave the WAS disabled and use
rsync's built-in compression (-z option) if reducing network traffic
is important.
