an unwanted chroot() call

I am trying to run rsync under my own userid on a high-numbered port.
The problem is that, when I use the --daemon option, I get an error
saying that a chroot() call failed.

My config file does *not* have any chroot call in it.

How can I avoid a chroot() invocation when running as a normal non-root

Thanks in advance for any advice!
