[K12OSN] OT-BackupPC Errors

Hi everybody,

Sorry about the OT, but I heard about BackupPC here, and it is K12LTSP 
servers that I'm backing up with it. 

Anyway, For a little over a week now I've been getting " aborted by 
signal=PIPE" messages on my backuppc home page. 

Here's the "errors only" log entry for one of my servers, the other 
server looks identical (but I haven't parsed it out line for line to be 
sure, but it looks like the same file is breaking both servers.)

Running: /usr/bin/ssh -q -x -l root /usr/bin/rsync --server --sender --numeric-ids --perms --owner --group --devices --links --times --block-size=2048 --recursive --one-file-system --exclude /var/spool/squid --exclude slocated.db --exclude /proc --exclude /ckeil/secret --exclude /www/k12ltsp --exclude /lost+found --exclude=/proc --exclude=/var/spool/squid --exclude=slocate.db --exclude=/ckeil/secret --exclude=/www/k12ltsp . /

Got fatal error during xfer (aborted by signal=PIPE)
Backup aborted by user signal

Does anyone have a clue how to fix this?  I don't know what to do here?  
I tried a "yum clean all" hoping that would rewrite the file or 
something, to no avail.  It seems odd that both servers would be having 
trouble with the same file, perhaps that means my backuppc server is the 
box with the problem.
