Hi All,
   I have a client and we are trying to create a backup for several  
folders on OSX 10.4.11 with rsync 3.0.0pre9. One folder copies fine  
but the other three generate this error and I am stumped.


  rsync -aHAX --fileflags --crtimes -v

we get;

sending incremental file list
rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 82 bytes [generator]: Broken  
pipe (32)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at  
io.c(1500) [generator=3.0.0pre9]

Any thoughts on why it is broken? Rob D
