Then you could remove the "rsh: ssh" line from the config :)

One thing you could try: remove the zxfer option, there have been case
known that requesting the compression leads to mutual timeouts.
Another thing may be interfering, and that is if you're going through a
NAT firewall. If too long passes without any traffic (e.g. the
generating the file list takes very long because there are many files)
then the firewall may timeout the NAT mapping and then the connection is
lost. Using ssh with ProtocolKeepAlive settings or such may help keep
the link "alive" in that case.
