rsync problem

I'm trying to backup partition "/users1" on host "john"
onto partition "backup1" on host "mary".

Here is my rsyncd.conf:

   path = /backup1
   use chroot
   uid root
   gid root
   auth users = backup
   secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.secrets
   strict modes = true
   hosts allow =
   hosts deny = *

It works with ssh as transport:

[root at john]#rsync -avx -e /usr/bin/ssh --progress /users1/
root at mary:/backup1

...but fails with remote rsync server:

[root at john]# rsync -avx --progress --password-file=/root/rsync.passwd
/users1/ backup at mary::backup1
building file list ...
rsync: error writing 4092 unbuffered bytes - exiting: Broken pipe
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(463)

Thanks for your help!
