Exactly as I expected.  As long as there are no weird non-visible
characters in that name (which I assume there are not), then you just
need to figure out how to get the "testuser" into your defined users on
the Linux box.  (Try running something like "groups testuser" to verify
that your system doesn't know about that user.)

I'm wondering if your system is using something like NIS+ or LDAP
instead of the passwd file.  All this is outside the realm of rsync,
though -- rsync is running exactly as it should.
