I'm still getting the error with rsync-HEAD-20080113-0640GMT:

sync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 5 bytes [sender]: Broken pipe (32)
[receiver] internal abbrev error! len=61 datum[0]=98
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (52620 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(600)

Note: I added rxa>datum_len and rxa->datum[0] to the abbrev error rprintf in
case that helps.
