This is about rsync-2.6.2-8.2, right?

I've updated using YOU and now am not able to rsync large directories:

rsync -av --delete /home/* /home.backup/
building file list ... done
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (8 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(342)

The version shipped with 9.1 works just fine with the same directories.

Was this update rushed in? Any fixes?

Thanks, -Kastus
