It actually doesn't matter if rsync was compiled 32bit or 64bit.  The
check is: rsync --version | grep 64-bit.files

Of course that only means rsync can handle large files.  The OS or
filesystem can still fail.  Essentially, rsync's receiver thread
crashed and the sender thread has no idea why it just knows it stopped

Might have to resort to running strace on the receiver thread to see
what happens when it breaks.
