i'm sorry, my english is not very good.

My system is os x server 10.4.11 with last update.
Now i use rsync version 3.05pre1
With a terminal, to obtain a binary rsync i do :
>make install
I have no error during compilation.
I have tow server (same config) on the same vlan network.
I use ssh with private key for the authentification.

the server contain 500000 files about.
they are 10 folder on the first depth of the tree, and one contain a folder
with 100 subfolder with 3500 files each. (i specify it because this folder
reduce the performance of rsync).

I test several option to rsync, and this is similar) the more use option is :

 OPTION="--rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync -avAX --del --ignore-errors --backup

the command is  
/usr/local/bin/rsync $OPTION $PATH $SERVER2:$PATH

with no problem the rsync run 2 hours about (1/2h without option -X)
sometimes (3times on 5) i've this errors :

rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4 bytes [sender]: Broken pipe (32)
[receiver] internal abbrev error on DESCMDL/logo/sf36/02669436.eps
(, len=138449)!
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (129644 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(595)

I pointed that this error is systematics (each time) when a lot of file is
delete on the destination.

for info : with a os x client 10.5.5 I have this error :
[sender] internal abbrev error on Desktop/Gravé n°1 à 100/04 Le canal du
bonheur (, len=32)!
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at xattrs.c(596)

in all case without --backup option, I have not error

if I help you more...

thank's a lot
