Regarding this reply from Pegasus that I found after reporting the
problem as a bug:

The rsyncd.conf manpage clearly states that the exclude list
specified in the config file "only applies on the server".
There is no point my quoting the whole section when you can
read it yourself.
I had that phrase highlighted in the man page - and had copied the
exclusion file to the server (which is also the target). I mentioned
this in the original report. Perhaps "only applies on the server" needs
to be defined more precisely. Are you saying that the exclusions have to
be defined in a file on the server _and_ the copy performed _from_ the
server rather than _to_ it?
