Large exclude list

I'm facing problems with rsync using very large exclude-from list (around 780k lines,
32MB in size). Clients reads whole exclude list, then the sender receives the exclude
rules but is stuck at around line 32k ... Can you point me what to look out?
What information would be useful to find the issue?

The rsync client/sender versions are 3.0.9.
