This indicates that your filesystem is not behaving correctly, since it
is returning conflicting results to rsync.  One of your pastebin errors
from an earlier email also listed an NFS error with a mount going stale,
which is something that you'd need to fix outside of rsync.

That looks like some kind of text message getting in the way of the
protocol, since the number turns into the string "bin".
