I experienced the same error when rsync to an external usb ide drive. When it
happened, the system hanged. Following Andrew Morris with --bwlimit=8192
--timeout=600 setting got rid of system hanging. However, it causes rsync to
abort after 600 seconds.

The problem is due to the disk auto spin down after no data transferring to or
from the disk for 15 minutes. This can happen when rsync is removing a large
file in the disk. "df /disk_mount_point" once every 5 minutes walks around the
