Not an answer to your question, but related:
You know, when I recently had to rebuild uncle-enzo.linuxmafia.com,
because of problems with /dev/sdb, I did my backups immediately before
using rsync (v. 2.4.6) -- but re-encountered the classic rsync / ssh
select() deadlock with OpenSSH v. 1.2.3 (on both hosts).
I believe I was using secsh protocol v. 1.5. I'm not sure which cipher:
probably 3DES or Blowfish.
I'm referring to the problem discussed previously on this mailing list,
and detailed here:
Given the press of time, I fell back onto rsh, to complete the backup.
Some list members may find this VA Linux knowledgebase article handy,
for casual backups:
