This is an extremely inefficient way to use rsync.  It transfers the
entire contents of every file across the network whereas using
rsync in client/server mode would transfer only the differences.

I don't know why your system's crashing, but I do suggest that you
try running rsync as a daemon instead (the rsync:// mode of
operation) instead.  You'll need appropriate access controls for
this to be safe of course but it is certainly no worse than NFS!
