This means either that file-list number 86300 is not matching up between
the sender and the receiver, or that the data stream is somehow out of
whack, so the sender misinterpreted what the generator was asking it to
do.  I have not seen this failure, so I'll need some more information to
diagnose what is going wrong.  An easy way to start to narrow it down is
to run the rsync command with 3 -v options.  For each transfer, you'll
see a set of verbose messages, such as:

generating and sending sums for 53
send_files(53, ../rsync/byteorder.h)

This shows us that the two sides are in sync on both the # and the name.
If you get a failure, send me the tail end of the -vvv output and it
should reveal how things have gone wrong.
