I remember this your report. However, recent news force to suspect
that the reason was in Solaris yet. Actually, if you send tcpdump of
failed session, this question can be answered.


rsync has __no__ chances to work, if one of sides is Linux-2.2 before 2.2.17
or Solaris of today (sunos-2.5.1 is enough old, probably, it still was right
unlike subsequent kernels). These stacks have conciding set of fatal bugs,
which prevent transmits with closed window.

To use rsync it is necessary to upgrade to >=2.2.17.
