I will try that on the complete directory structure once I work my
self through manually selecting directories by letters. I get
approxiately 11.5 MBps on all directories that I've copied so far,

The HDD died when I issued rsync over a parent folder and rsync cried

the list of files that need to be synchronized, i.e. path names + geli

firmware. So if I am really lucky I will get the combination of geli +
file/directory that crashes the firmware of the USB HDD :)
