These mean that the "rsync --daemon" command did not start, so something
else must be accepting daemon connections on your system.  You'll need
to diagnose that if you want to get a core-dump from the daemon (which
must be run from a shell where ulimit allows core-dumps).

Your output commands in the client won't tell you anything because it is
already reporting that the server goes away, so the important thing is
what is happening to the server.  If you want to put some print commands
into server code, you can run "rsync --daemon --nodetach" to see them
(just be sure to output them on stderr).
