FreeBSD rsync server (and client as well), running latest rsync port.

I have a nightly cron job that runs rsync.  Every time the client 
connects I get this message in the server logs:

May 31 19:30:49 boud rsyncd[81707]: /etc/pwd.db: No such file or directory

The file is definitely there, and readable.

boud# ls -l /etc/pwd.db
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  40960 May 22 08:08 /etc/pwd.db

It's not that big a deal, because the rsync proceeds with no problems, 
I'm just wondering if this is something to be worried about?
