I've been having rsync problems this week too: my backup script has run
invisibly on a daily basis for the last year without issue.  I am now
getting permissions and chgrp 'access denied' errors without any change
of configuration on any of the machines involved.  My money is on rsync
itself, but I'm guessing.  I'll post if I make any progress with it.
