pre 1 OSX errors

Hi Wayne,

Trying out 3.1 pre 1 on OSX 10.8.4

I like the new extended stats and the ir-chunk file numbers in log. Also getting a lot of errors and most copies not completing to local disk. rsync just stalls.

Standard osx build:
 patch -p1 <patches/fileflags.diff
patch -p1 <patches/crtimes.diff
patch -p1 <patches/hfs-compression.diff

rsync --fileflags --force-change  --protect-decmpfs  --numeric-ids  --protect-args  --stats  --progress -vvv

when the stderr shows it is:

need to write 71730 bytes, iobuf.out.buf is only 65532 bytes.
rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at io.c(599) [sender=3.1.0pre1]
rsync: [sender] write error: Broken pipe (32)

seems to stall on several different files in output:

sender finished /Users/astrid/Desktop/robdutoit/me2.png
send_files(6, /Users/astrid/Desktop/robdutoit/photo_28.jpg)
send_files mapped /Users/astrid/Desktop/robdutoit/photo_28.jpg of size 31740
[sender] _exit_cleanup(code=2, file=io.c, line=599): about to call exit(2)

and often with calling match sums...

sender finished /Users/astrid/Desktop/ccc/CHase_05_22_13.html
send_files(6, /Users/astrid/Desktop/ccc/GetPID.c.html)
send_files mapped /Users/astrid/Desktop/ccc/GetPID.c.html of size 96214
calling match_sums /Users/astrid/Desktop/ccc/GetPID.c.html

I can restart and then it stalls again on same line or a few files down. Sometimes it stalls and no error is generated in stderr.

Thanks,  Rob
