This is very hard to decypher, but it looks like you may have put rsync
options in your ssh script.  Also, don't use '~' -- it might not be
expanded (it depends on your shell and the quoting).  Try this command
(subsitite USER as appropriate):

rsync -e 'ssh -i /home/USER/.ssh/id_rsa' /home/mysql host:/usr/src

or try this:

rsync -e myssh /home/mysql host:/usr/src

and put this in myssh:

ssh -i /home/USER/.ssh/id_rsa "${@}"

If that doesn't work, you should be checking for ssh errors.
