I never managed to reproduce that problem, neither, on any of my hosts.
(and I always use rsync over ssh, almost never as a daemon)

While use of socketpair() may be a better method, use of pipe() does
work and I'd request that the rsync package maintainer please rebuild
the package with this build option change and reissue the package so all
I may well produce such a package, but I wonder if it would work on all
people or not.
Maybe it could be marked as a "test" package so that people could
install it only explicitly clicking on version number, in setup.
Haven't we been here before? I would swear that there has been some toggling
before between these two options to fix other problems. While I suppose
that changes in the past don't necessarily preclude tromping over the same
ground now or in the future, presumably it only makes sense to do so if other
things have changed to make it worthwhile to consider now. Maybe it's worth
a little archive searching before putting much effort into generating
alternative package configurations for consideration/use. Just a thought.
