password file problem.

Hello everyone.
I can't seem to get the --password-file= option to work correctly.  I'm using 
ssh as the transport.  I've got the file 0600 and only the password with no 
carriage return.
Can someone provide an example of use.  Here is my try:
rsync -rtvvuz -e ssh --password-file=<file> /home/matt/* 

It still asks for a password which, if I type it manually, it then runs fine.
