Rsync only tries to change file ownership if it thinks that it is
running as root, and that test is currently a simple comparison of the
effective UID against 0.  You might try outputting the value of
geteuid() (or getuid() if geteuid() doesn't exist) and seeing if your
root user has a non-zero value.
