When transferring files via rsync I am receiving many, many errors of
the following form:

rsync: chown
failed: Invalid argument (22)

The rsync command used is:

rsync -acsvxHAX --append-verify --exclude '\.*' --exclude 'tmp'
--exclude 'javahotpot' --exclude 'lost+found' --progress
/home/byrnejb_hll  /media/usbkey/vhost04

What is causing the errors?

I am also encountering another problem with the same transfer in that
rsync apparently just stops transferring and I must use <ctrl>C to
exit the program and restart it to continue the transfer.  What causes
