Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 32025
rsync version with RedHat 7.0 is broken (2.4.4)

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0 i686)
I get this error message when one I run rsync like this:
/usr/bin/rsync -a --delete /scratch1/* /scratch1bak
/scratch1 is an NFS mounted filesystem, /scratch1bak is local.
Both kernels are Linux 2.4.2.
The error is:
unexpected EOF in read_timeout
rsync version 2.4.6 that I compiled myself WORKS.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up two systems with RedHat 7 + updates and kernel 2.4.2
2. Mount a filesystem from one to the other via NFS
3. Try to rsync from the NFS filesystem to a local one
Actual Results: rsync exited having done no actual copying/syncing of
Expected Results: /scratch1bak should have had a mirror of /scratch1/*
rsync-2.4.6 has been in rawhide for a while.
