Rsync probably builds a table in memory to track the inodes of files
with multiple links so you may be running out of RAM or slowing down
from swapping.  For a brute-force approach to see what is happening
you could strace the rsync process on the sending side.  You could at
least tell if it is still opening/reading files.
