OK, that fails for me too.  It was a rather simple mistake caused by
2.6.3pre1 not sending --delete if it thought that --delete-after was
going to imply that option.  In the case of sending to 2.5.5, this
resulted in the program not knowing that it had to read the exclude list
prior to reading the file list, so it was interpreting the data stream
incorrectly.  I've checked in a fix to CVS.  The latest "nightly" tar
file on the web site also has the fixed version.

Thanks for the report,
