I've thought the same thing myself, but I don't have any test cases for
that and haven't experienced the problem directly. As I recall, the
rsync case manifests as a hang which seems a bit different than this
case of unexpected EOFs. It's possible that it could be rsync's
reaction to the unexpected EOF could mask it as a hang, I suppose.
