           Summary: --exclude option causes rsync to fail
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.3
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: jguenther at gmail.com
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

After upgrading to rsync 2.6.3pre1 yesterday, I was no longer able to sync
successfully through SSH.

bash$ ssh -x root at host rsync --server --sender --exclude /etc -av . /
rsync: Error parsing options: option may be supported on client but not on server?
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1064)

If I remove the --exclude option this problem goes away. Both computers are
running rsync 2.6.3pre1.

This problem does not occur if I instead do `rsync -e "ssh -l root"' instead of
first SSH'ing to the remote computer and running rsync from there. If you need
any more information please let me know.
