I am getting the following error when I try to rsync using ssh on a Redhat 
7.2 box of another RedHat 7.2 box. I am running a OpenSSH_3.5p1 and rsync  
version 2.5.6.

One clue is, it works fine if i do it as root!!! Could be permission issues, 
but on what? I have checked permissions on all the relevant config. files as 
well as files/directories involved.

Any ideas/tips would be greatly appreciated.
