Error rsync 2.6.2 Solaris 9 over Sun SSH

I'm using Sun SSH on Solaris 9 and am getting the following error when 
using rsync over ssh:

wrote 91628 bytes  read 116 bytes  16680.73 bytes/sec
total size is 293287825  speedup is 3196.81
rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at main.c(633)

The command I am using is:

rsync -e ssh --rsync-path=/opt/rsync/bin/rsync -vazul /sample/path/ 

When I change 'ssh' to be 'rsh', the error goes away. I have to do ugly 
things to make my destination insecure, of course.

Has anybody else seen this? Any ideas?

I haven't tried using OpenSSH instead of Sun SSH yet.
