Trying to run an rsync job between an old Debian machine
	rsync  version 2.6.9  protocol version 29
and a newer CentOS box:
	rsync  version 2.6.8  protocol version 29

Just trying to grab the home directory [from the CentOS box]:
	rsync -avvv 
/bu/home/  --exclude-from=excludes > rsync.test
	(where excludes contains: /proc, /tmp, /dev)

rsync.test shows receiving the file list:

[client] parse_filter_file(excludes,0,3)
[client] add_rule(- /proc)
[client] add_rule(- /tmp)
[client] add_rule(- /dev)
opening connection using ssh rsync --server 
--sender -vvvlogDtpr . /home/
receiving file list ...
[tons of files, including many *NOT* in /home!]


received 369290 names

***BUT*** no files are ever transferred, nor does the rsync command 
ever return!

Any thoughts would be appreciated, ..
