Ah, OK, apologies - I only checked HTTP last night, as I received your
mail as I was about to head out.

It seems the rsync daemon had stopped for some reason; I've started it
back up, and will be looking in to why it stopped, and more importantly
why Nagios didn't catch it for me (I thought rsync on that box was
being monitored, but presumably not, since I had to find out by a
report from you, rather than automated alerts...)

Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for letting me know about the
problems you were seeing.
