rsync not reporting diskfull error

> If pushing data (e.g. a local copy or copy from local to remote), there is a failure where the receiver can try to report an error, die, and the sender gets the error trying to write to the receiver before it gets the error message from "around the horn" (it would have gone to the generator, and then to the sender if given a chance).  This is something that I've fixed in rsync 3.1.0dev (the latest git on the master branch), which now has a mode where the receiver just chews through data waiting for a die signal instead of dying before the error messages can be finished up.  It also supports the --msgs2stderr option, which works for most local and remote-shell situations (but not daemon connections) where any of the 3 processes can output its message to stderr and bypass all the data being sent on the protocol socket.

You are a star!
