As far as I can tell, after version 2.6.4, the "--daemon" and "--temp-dir" options are not compatible anymore.  Previous versions allow this.  We use this heavily at my site.  Is this an intentional change or bug?

My command to start the daemon is this:
/usr/local/bin/rsync --temp-dir=/.rsyncd-spool --daemon
