Another process can't simply "take away" the port from a running rsync
daemon (otherwise a new rsync daemon could take it back!).
Apparently the system was restarted, or at least rsync and rpc.statd
were stopped and then rpc.statd started before rsync.

Fix the config so that the rsync daemon is started before rpc stuff.
