The latest dev source should have this fixed (e.g. git repository, latest
"nightly" tar file).  There were quite a few issues with skipped hard-linked
files (via --append, --ignore-existing, etc.) that could cause problems (I saw
both the assert error you cited and a hang).  I also noticed that older
versions of rsync were not doing the right thing in some of the option cases
(e.g. hard-linking files into place that did not exist, even though
--ignore-non-existing was specified).  So, this should both fix the regression
and improve several things.

Thanks for the report!

Also, as a bonus, I noticed this log entry was bogus, and fixed that too:
