Corrupt Windows executables - K-Lite setup programs only

Hi: I'm running rsync-3.0.7 from a freebsd-7.2 x32 box and a 
freebsd-8.0-x64 box. All files seem to replicate fine except the setup 
programs for K-Lite Codec Pack e.g. 
[10667732 bytes]
[3072373 bytes]

The command options used to transfer are:
     rsync -v -4 -t -e ssh

After transfer, I try to execute the program and get a pop-up error 'The 
setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program'.
If I simply download the file directly to the target freebsd box via the 
URL above it executes fine [i.e. the original binary is not corrupt].

The problem occurs *consistently* with *any* version of the K-Lite 
setup/upgrade programs. And apparently only with these.

The byte sizes, mod times, and md5 signatures are identical on both sides:
10667732 Feb  3 15:33 K-Lite_Codec_Pack_570_Standard.exe
     MD5 (K-Lite_Codec_Pack_570_Standard.exe) = 
3072373 Feb  3 15:28 klcp_update_570_20100203.exe
     MD5 (klcp_update_570_20100203.exe) = 703c7ea4b11666fc4c37039528c0d905

I didn't see specific mention of this in bugzilla, wondered if it is a 
known issue or if others have repro'd.
