If the rsync server sends a TCP ZeroWindow packet to a client, that
probably indicates that the server is either hung or looped. Either
way, it has stopped reading data from the socket, and the kernel sends
ZeroWindow to the client's host to indicate that the client should stop

Have you tried attaching strace to the rsync server process when it hangs?
