I'm trying the latest rsync(3.0.0prev7) on Mac OS 10.5.1 and getting the
following error:

rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 887 bytes [sender]: Broken pipe
recv_xattr_request: internal abbrev error!
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (26242 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(600)

Can someone explain what an internal abbrev error is?

The rsync is to an attached firewire disk using:
  rsync --acls --xattrs --fake-super -a -v -exclude EXCLUDE

Thanks in advance.
