some more observations on this error.

I actually got
sync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code 22) at io.c(632)

with 3.0.4 on debian and 3.0.4 on cygwin as receiver, with iconv=. it detects

now the fun about it .. it definitely boils down to incomplete multibyte
characters in filename (copying with samba obv. under certain cirumstances
destroys umlauts etc.).. if I rename them, all is fine

more fun .. if i switch -vv or more .. it reduces to a warning in the end
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code
23) at main.c(1058) [sender=3.0.4]

and I can see all the problematic files with entries like
[receiver] cannot convert filename: /CD1/(13) Kâ

as incomplete multibyte chars are defective, it makes sense to repair those
names. But still: 
a) no reason for rsync to complain about memory errors
b) obviously not because it doesn't crash when executed more verbose

does that help?.. bud
