Rsync just hanging sometimes

I just encountered a weird situation and don't even know how to find out
what happened?
There is nothing in the rsync-server logs, nothing on the screen, maybe
should I add some more keys (options) to get more detailed information?

I just successfully synchronized one module and got this problem on the
second module...
Rsync starts, goes as in the log below and just hangs like this for minutes
or maybe even hours and nothing changes...

Here is the full output:
