If you're seeing any of these errors the problem is worse than you 
think. Also, you haven't mentioned anything about the logs on the 
master. Are you seeing any errors about the number of simultaneous 
transfers exceeded? IME if things work on the command line but the 
servers are not performing as expected this is usually the culprit. Also 
IME the default limits for simultaneous transfers and SOA queries are 
quite conservative. On a busy master I usually at least double them. 
You'll want to watch performance on the master to make sure it's not 
actually getting swamped of course.
