Unfortunately, this is not something that rsync currently has keep-alive code
inside (the directory scanning code).  The timeout value currently needs to be
set high enough to handle the largest directory scan, and (if something like
--copy-file were used) the largest local-file copy the generator might do.  The
only thing you can currently do is to increase the timeout to the point where
it doesn't fire during a successful transfer.

This would be something that would be good to improve for 3.1.0.
