That's because --bwlimit is a client option.  The current code in CVS,
which now prevents the the user from mixing daemon options with client
options, doesn't even let you specify --bwlimit in combination with
--daemon.  I am considering making --bwlimit a daemon option, but the
older rsync code would always override the server's value with a value
specified by the client, so this was just a default bwlimit for each
transfer, and not an enforced limit.

Thoughts?  Were you expecting the daemon-specified bwlimit to be just a
default or a maximum limit?
