rsync stalls at .sparsebundle directories on OS X‏‏

Seems the error was caused by broken .sparsebundle directories. Other .sparsebundle directories are working fine.
Regarding "rsync: unpack_smb_acl: sys_acl_get_info(): Undefined error: 0 (0)" I ran:
find /Volumes/data/ -exec ls -lde {} \; | grep -E "[0-9]{1}: [0-9A-Z]{8}-[0-9A-Z]{4}-[0-9A-Z]{4}-[0-9A-Z]{4}-[0-9A-Z]{12}" -B 1
to see what directories/files had permissions with users that did no longer exist. I changed the permissions for these directories and the files inside them. This fixed the problem.

> Hi. I try to make backups from one disk to another. I have .sparsebundle[1] directories on the source drive (/Volumes/data/). When rsync reaches the first .sparsebundle it stalls and stays there until i ctrl+c.
> I'm using OS X Yosemite and rsync version 3.1.1 protocol version 31 installed via homebrew. However, I had this problem on OS X Lion too using rsync 3.0.9. Actually, the reason I updated to Yosemite was partly because I thought I might get rsync working again.
