I'm using rsync 2.6.9 under Solaris 10. The file system I'm trying to
sync has ~7.6 million files. Here's what happens:

# rsync -avS . /newfiles1 
building file list ... done
rsync: fork failed in do_recv: Not enough space (12)
rsync error: error in IPC code (code 14) at main.c(709) [receiver=2.6.9]
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (8 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(453) [sender=2.6.9]

Anyone know what's going on?
