------- Comment #5 from cwallace@lodgingcompany.com 2008-05-04 21:29 CST -------
I'm experiencing the same problem when copying from a 3.0.0 rsync client to a
2.6.9 server.

---
janus:/var/log/asterisk# rsync --bwlimit=1000 -v --progress --protocol=29 full
neptune::janus/var/log/asterisk/
Invalid block length 132328 [sender]
rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at io.c(1324) [sender=3.0.0]
---

I've narrowed it down to that one file (/var/log/asterisk/full), which is only
23MB but was once (and still is on the destination) 17GB. I suspect if I
delete or truncate the 17GB copy on the destination, the problem will not
occur.

(...trying it out...brb...)

Bingo!

Well, now that I'm compressing my log files, I won't have any more that are
17GB... but I thought I'd share my experience with you guys anyway...
Unfortunately, that file (/var/log/asterisk/full) contains a lot of sensitive
information, so I can't share it. I'll try to reproduce it later by creating
large files from /dev/zero on the destination.
