Since rsync doesn't supply any malloc code, that's probably a question for
your C-library provider. You might first try out 3.2.3, which fixed a
couple mem issues in the xattr code, but since you don't seem to be using
xattrs, that may not change anything. You could also try running rsync
under something like valgrind and see if it spits out any mem issues
(though it would run more slowly while doing it). Please keep in mind that
it's always most helpful to upgrade before starting in on a
debuggin session.
