rsync --server --daemon is listening on stdin?

I've been trying to setup an rsync server on a WinXP box so that I can
sync files between my desktop and laptop. I'm starting rsync as:
rsync --server --daemon --no-detach .
from a command prompt.
but I can never connect to it -- even "telnet localhost 873" doesn't
work. It seems that rsync is listening on stdin, rather than listening
on a socket.
When I type at it I immediately get an error message --
@ERROR: protocol startup error
Is there anything special I need to do to convince rsync to use a
socket instead of stdin/stdout? The only info I can find in the
documentation says that in daemon mode it will test stdin in to see if
it is a socket. Presumably it is failing this test, and therefore
should be starting its own socket, right?
