For protocol-corruption errors like this one, the whole process stops.

Wayne plans to release rsync 3.0.1 in the next few days. Until then,
you can use a nightly snapshot or exclude the offending file. (This is
a major, easily overlooked advantage of rsync's filters: if one file
gives rsync trouble, one can simply exclude it so that the rest of the
run can proceed.)
